About Me

AKA Einstein's Girl. Smart, sexy, sassy Gia Mora is an accomplished actor, a vocal dynamo with a four-octave range, and a writer with an astute sense of humor and pathos. She brings her unique blend of beauty and brains to her work on camera and on stage, and now as the newest artist signed to Modern Songbook Records. Known for both her original storytelling and compositions as well as her interpretation of standards, Miz Mora’s solo shows have played to sold-out audiences on both coasts, headlining at clubs including at Don’t Tell Mama, The Gardenia, Bethesda Blues & Jazz, Blues Alley, An Die Musik, and Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret. A third generation jazz musician, Miz Mora also frequently appears with her father, guitarist Rick Chinisci. For her work on stage, she has received four Helen Hayes nominations and has appeared at Arena Stage, Woolly Mammoth, Kennedy Center, Ford’s Theatre, Shakespeare Theatre Company, and Arvada Center, among many others. Miz Mora graduated summa cum laude and with honors in Screenwriting/Playwriting from the University of Colorado and in 2009 received a diploma in Italian Language and Culture from the University of Pisa.
