Glenda is a jazz, blues, and contemporary vocalist.
Known for her soulful sound and expressive improvisations, she is committed to curating and performing songs from the Great American Songbook, creating new music, and stretching her vocal limits.

Glenda grew up singing in choirs and at Music Theater camps, and has been singing since she could make sound! She freelanced in New York and San Francisco as a jazz vocalist (alongside her career as a classical oboist). Glenda is a founding member of the Jazz Mafia Choral Syndicate in Oakland, CA, and is a vocal soloist with the Capitol Lab Band in DC. With her impressive range from contralto to high mezzo-soprano, she draws inspiration from vocal legends like Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra, while adding her own unique expression to each song.
