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, 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, and now writes bluesy-kids-pop songs for her KinderBlues brand. She also sings contemporary and experimental music, and performed as a vocalist with Stony Brook University's performance of Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich in 2012. She has an impressive range from contralto to high mezzo-soprano, and can sing in a variety of styles and inflections. Most recently, Glenda sings with the Jazz Mafia Choral Syndicate, a Jazz-Gospel-Funk fusion ensemble based in Oakland, CA.
