Meet Kelley Suttenfield:

Kelley Suttenfield is a vocalist in the neo-classic jazz tradition, delivering soulful interpretations of lyrics over a smooth, swinging beat.

With a diverse repertoire ranging from Brazilian standards to the Beatles and beyond, Kelley's music is known for creating an evocative mood that clearly resonates with her audience. Kelley performs regularly in New York City and, on occasion, her former stomping grounds in Virginia, as well as overseas in Copenhagen, Denmark.

She received a mention in Volume IV of the World Who's Who in Jazz, Cabaret, Music and Entertainment (2007), was a finalist in the Jazzmobile Jazz Vocalist competition (2008), and has just released debut CD Where Is Love? on Rhombus Records.
