Amanda King & Trio / April 14, 2014. A classic chanteuse who performs little known gems from the 1930’s and 40’s, as well as jazz standards and popular songs from the Great American Songbook. Possessing a smoothness of voice and surety of style, she has been hailed by critic Stephen Holden in the New York Times as one of the nightclub world’s “exceptional rising talents”. Combining the best of the jazz and cabaret worlds by focusing on the words, the music, and the swing, Amanda masterfully interprets the music she adores.
In the last three years Amanda has appeared at venues throughout San Francisco and the greater Bay Area including, the Empire Plush Room, Jazz at Pearl’s, Bliss Bar and the Herbst Theater. Combining her theatrical and musical gifts she garnered critical acclaim as “Queenie” in Duke Ellington’s rarely performed jazz opera, “Queenie Pie”, produced by the Oakland Opera Theater. She also appeared at the Fillmore Jazz Festival, the North Beach Festival, and the Castro Street Festival where she became an instant hit. In December of 2008 Amanda performed with the prestigious San Francisco Chamber Orchestra singing Gershwin songs arranged for the orchestra by Bay Area jazz icon Jeff Neighbor, Amanda’s regular bassist.
Amongst other venues she has appeared at The Rrazz Room in San Francisco, as well as returned to her hometown of Indianapolis IN to perform in the critically acclaimed Indy Jazz Fest. She debuted her show “Forgotten Women, Lost Songs” (2010) at The Metropolitan Room in New York City.
