In 2001, Changamiré released her critically acclaimed debut album, Only Human. Raised on the music of Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn and Dinah Washington, AllAboutJazz.com said about Changamiré, "It's difficult to nail down just what makes her voice so darn compelling. Maybe it's the comfort and familiarity, maybe the confiding honesty. Whatever the case, it works exceptionally well."
A recipient of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities' Artist Fellowship, Changamiré released her second album, Love, in 2014 and will perform at Dupont Underground with an extraordinary ensemble of musicians that has accompanied her since 2007 – Count Basie alum, Lincoln Ross, on trombone and as Music Director; the brilliant Clifton Brockington on piano; bluesy BT Richardson on bass; drummer to the stars, Steve Walker; and the incomparable Donvonte McCoy on trumpet.
