Biography

It's difficult to nail down just what makes her voice so darn compelling. Maybe it's the comfort and familiarity, maybe the confiding honesty. Whatever the case, it works exceptionally well. Changamire is a markedly original vocalist who deserves wider recognition, which hopefully waits just over the horizon. The music could use a lot more of her.
-- Todd S. Jenkins, AllAboutJazz.com

A jazzy chanteuse with the pop sensibilities in the vein of Cassandra Wilson and Anita Baker, Changamiré has it all: immaculate phrasing, tastefully restrained vibrato, a taste of honey in her tones, delicate songwriting, and fitting accompaniment that neither towers over nor cowers beneath her.
