Kimberly "KAZ" Woods

Kimberly Woods, also known as KAZ, is a Jazz vocalist and actress currently residing in New York City. A breath of fresh air on the New York music scene, her voice has a sultry, buttery tone leaving the listener enchanted by her music. Kimberly's inviting and playful personality, along with her repertoire of Jazz Standards and more, make for a vibrant performance in any venue. KAZ works in duo with guitar or piano, with a trio, or full band.

Growing up in Salt Lake City, Utah, she was first introduced to Jazz through the music of her Grandfather, Bill Woods, playing saxophone and clarinet around the valley. She quickly fell in love with the sounds of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughn, Peggy Lee, and other artists of that era and has always been enamored with the Great American Song book. She is influenced by Diana Krall, Ann Hampton Calloway, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr. and others. Performing in Chicago, San Francisco, Salt Lake City and most recently Phoenix, she is thrilled to be in the Big Apple.
