Amber Weekes


Amber Weekes believes that jazz can heal the soul.  Her beautiful, timeless voice is preserving the jazz sounds and mood of the great artists the world has known and keeping it alive.

American jazz recording artist Amber Weekes has given the world a special and unique gift – her voice.

Her producer, Mark Cargill, described it as “a voice from Heaven,” and “hears harps, violins, and trumpets on a cloud of velvet” whenever she begins to sing.

Weekes is rising to the pinnacle of her career with the 2024 release of “A Lady with a Song – Amber Weekes Celebrates Nancy Wilson,” an homage to the legendary jazz singer and fellow storyteller.  This new project features Guitarist Russell Malone, Flute and saxophonist Justo Almario, and several other renowned musicians.  Her other albums, “Pure Imagination,” Christmas album “The Gathering,” and “Round Midnight Re-Imagined,” which Midwest Record’s Chris Spector calls “killer stuff,” all reflect her mastery of the jazz song.

Weekes, the granddaughter of Wilfred and Nettie Weekes, has embraced the creative influence of musical giants Lena Horne, Duke Ellington, and Billy Strayhorn, who were served inside her grandparents’ luncheonette in Harlem and left a musical mark on the Weekes family.  Raised in Los Angeles in a home filled with the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Barbara Streisand, Diahann Carroll, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Nancy Wilson, Weekes was born to sing. 

A well-trained vocalist, she has continued to study with three-time Grammy nominee, Sue Raney. With Raney’s guidance, she has uncovered her true singing talent by using her beautiful voice to tell deep stories.

Weekes has performed all around the United States and the world, including Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and the Hampstead Jazz Club in London.  She is a frequent headliner at Sunset Boulevard’s famed Catalina Jazz Club and has been a featured artist at the renowned “Jazz at LACMA” - (Los Angeles County Museum of Art).  Her chart-topping music in the Roots Music Reports is played on radio stations and streamed around the world for all to enjoy.
