Neha's music has that nostalgic quality to it, one that will have you feeling like you're sitting in a Parisian street café sipping a glass of champagne. Her arrangements are thoughtful and complex, and her sumptuous powerhouse of a voice will leave you awed at the 5'2 framed young Indian woman. A gifted singer, composer & pianist, Neha’s style can be characterized as a smorgasbord of musical personalities. She cites influences such as Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke, Dinah Washington, and Carmen MacRae, to name a few. While definitely rooted in jazz, elements of folk, blues, pop and her mother's classical indian musical background also permeate.
A graduate of Northwestern University with a degree in Economics, Neha spent four years post-college working for the tech giant, Google, Inc in the Bay Area. She penned some of her first tracks from her cubicle, and spent much of her free time hitting the jam sessions and songwriting open mics in San Francisco before quitting to pursue her Masters degree at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music.
A recent recipient of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest finalist award for her original song 'The Willow Tree,' Neha released her debut album in January 2014, "The Dreamer." She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY where she teaches on the faculty at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in Park Slope and at the Jalopy Theater and Music School in Red Hook.
In a career that spans over a decade, Katie has opened for the Becca Stevens Band, performed as a background singer on the Oprah Show, performed at Madison Square Garden with the Game of Thrones Live Show, and has performed with Donny McCaslin and Clark Terry amongst other jazz luminaries. A sensitive and engaging songwriter, Katie performs her own music and original arrangements of others, and dances effortlessly on the line between folk, jazz, and experimental vocal improvisation. A passionate voice educator and certified Alexander Technique teacher, Katie brings her practice to her performance and creates an intimate and honest experience.
Vocalist and composer Tammy Scheffer has been a creative force in NYC’s vibrant jazz scene for almost a decade. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “innovative, provocative and alluring”, Scheffer composes and leads multiple projects, among them are the rock trio Morning Bound and the Tammy Scheffer Sextet. Scheffer performed at Carnegie Hall and the Jazz Standard in NYC, Revoice Festival in London, MISA festival in China, San Sebastian Jazz Festival in Spain, Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington DC, Chicago Cultural Center, Virginia Arts Festival and many other premier stages.
