Jazz, Female Vocals
A native of Santa Monica, CA, Courtney has been impressing audiences since elementary school. Her early performances include fundraisers with such acclaimed artists as Natalie Cole and Robert Winter, as well as her solo Jazz debut at 15 with Sheila Jordan and Jay Clayton. Her influences, Ella Fitzgerald, Janis Joplin, Eva Cassidy, Fiona Apple and Billy Holliday all inspired Courtney to investigate a wide range of genres. This appreciation for a wide pallet of musical styles lead her to the Jazz and Contemporary Program at Manhattan’s prestigious New School University.
For her debut CD “Stay With Me” Courtney teamed with Grammy winner Mike Acosta as a co-writer, Producer and Saxophonist. Mr. Acosta is known as the creative genius behind the original Brian Setzer Orchestra, for which he served as Musical Director, Arranger and featured soloist.
Courtney appears around LA at venues such as The Jazz Bakery, Catalina Bar and Grill and other familiar Jazz haunts in the city. She has also performed with the Hollywood Symphony Choir honoring great composers of our time in beautiful Royce Hall of UCLA.
