SHAILAH EDMONDS, A native of Portland, Oregon began her music career by co-writing a song for Betty Wright (of Clean-Up Woman), and have since sung with the late Lionel Hampton, background for Fred Schneider (of B-52s) solo CD, and Lead singer of The Cover Girls doing 60s cover songs. She also opened in Paris at the Olympia Stadium for Sydney Youngblood and toured with the Marvelettes, doing both lead and background vocals before going solo. 
She is currently kept busy, singing at various upscale venues in the New York City area, as well as private events. For this show, She will be singing jazz standards from Ellington to Porter, from her new CD entitled, "Moonlight Magic", which will also be videotaped. Inspired by Ella, Billie, Dinah, Natalie and other legendary jazz vocalists, Shailah has developed her own style, with an incredibly smooth phrasing technique. She will be accompanied by some of New York's best musicians, on piano, bass, drums and sax.
"Shailah Edmonds is clearly a jazz singer, but to describe her that way is to ignore her broader appeal. Her show kept this dyed-in-the-wool cabaret critic happy, as it obviously did for a mixed audience of jazz, cabaret, and even Motown fans. Edmonds came across as unfailingly warm, personable, upbeat and joyous.
