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). She has an impressive range from contralto to high mezzo-soprano, and can sing in a variety of styles and inflections. She draws inspiration from vocal legends like Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Mel Torme, and Frank Sinatra, while adding her own charm and unique expression to each song.
