Michelle Lordi

A singer of elegant taste, pure expressiveness and irresistible sensuality

Combining unique clarity and grace with subtle emotional depth and eclectic tastes, Philadelphia-based vocalist Michelle Lordi sings impeccably curated standards that span three generations of heartfelt love songs. Michelle offers a unique mix of traditional and modern influences in her breakthrough CD, Drive (2015). Drive (produced by and featuring pianist Orrin Evans) takes listeners on a captivating personal journey, mining ten favorites from her varied repertoire of American Songbook classics and modern pop hits. Drive was well received by critics and received extensive radio airplay both nationally and internationally.

Michelle's upcoming CD, Dream A Little Dream is a reflection on the joy of her experiences working with Philadelphia bebop jazz legends tenor saxophonist Larry McKenna & guitarist Sonny Troy. Troy & McKenna have been making music together for more than 65 years and have backed stars such as Frankie Avalon, Rosemary Clooney, Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee. Larry McKenna plays on and wrote all the arrangements for Dream A Little Dream, which he tailored to highlight Michelle's elegant approach to these finely curated standards from the American Songbook.

Michelle's passion for storytelling through song is clear in her engaging performances. Her profound love of the music she chooses to sing and sublime musicians she creates with is evident in every note of her vividly expressive and elegantly communicative voice.
