Jazz Vocalist and Composer
Rebecca Sullivan is a Brooklyn-based singer and composer whose folk- and jazz-infused songs draw inspiration from music ranging from Patsy Cline to Sarah Vaughan and beyond. The Huffington Post writes, "Sullivan pairs an appealing, sparkling-fresh instrument with keen intelligence and sophisticated musicianship," while Chicago Jazz Magazine notes her "wonderful story-telling ability" and "sultry, glassy tone." She holds a master's degree in Contemporary Improvisation from the New England Conservatory of Music, where she focused on vocal performance and composition.
Rebecca has studied with Dominique Eade, Kate McGarry, NEA Jazz Master Sheila Jordan, and MacArthur "Genius" Award winner Ran Blake. She has performed throughout the country at venues like Chicago's Jazz Showcase, Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, and New York's Cornelia Street Cafe and was recently interviewed on WBUR, Boston's NPR station, along with vocalists Dee Dee Bridgewater, Dominique Eade, and more, as part of feature on Billie Holiday's 100th birthday.
