Starting as a straight-ahead jazz singer who performed mostly standards, Audrey now also sings original works, contemporary pieces, and elegant French songs.
She has been performing in the area for about 15 years at venues including previously at Club Bonadide, Jazz at Kitano, the Cornelia Street Café, 55 Bar, the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, and the JVC Jazz Festival. She also loves doing pro bono work and has performed in a number of institutional settings including senior centers and homeless shelters
Audrey’s recently released album, Very Early, reached #100 on the Jazz Week Chart, #10 on the RMR’s top 50 jazz albums, and #11 on the CMJ chart. Locally, Jonathan Schwartz has played it. Also, it was in regular rotation on WBGO for several months earlier this year, and Michael Bourne featured Audrey and Very Early in a live interview last month on his WBGO show .
Audrey’s love for jazz was kindled in high school and has only grown with time. When she performs, she hopes her audience will experience the same beauty, fascination, and joy in the music that she does.
“[Audrey’s] voice is like pure sterling. Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control—a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked—rivals Sinatra’s” – Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes.com
“[Silver’s]voice is an open invitation, an instrument of confession and creation that immediately transports you to someplace else…from her first utterances through her last words on Very Early.” – Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
