""a terrifically entertaining singer""

“Elaine St. George is a terrifically entertaining singer. Full of life, gutsy and vibrant, she growls, purrs and soars. She is easy to love.” - Talkin' Broadway

"Compared to Barbara Cook"

“Barbara Cook and Elaine St. George must have been separated at birth. St. George hits the same gorgeous, shimmery notes as the grande dame of cabaret.” - Time Out New York

""A distinctly hip performer""

“A distinctly hip performer...it is the juxtaposition of her sharp, satirical wit and her remarkable voice that gets people’s attention.” - Bay Windows

""That Old-Fashioned Love" review"

Elaine St. George - That Old-Fashioned Love (Two E Music). This six-song disc comes from a concert that St. George performed in June 2004. On Old-Fashioned, St. George uses her soprano marvelously in Sondheim's "So Many People," reflecting the same heartfelt phrasing as Barbara Cook. Also on the disc are a jazzy take on the Kern/Mercer standard "I'm Old-Fashioned" and a smooth medley of Porter's "So Nice to Come Home to/Easy to Love." - The Sondheim Review


[Translation of review published in Italian]
"The excellent singer Elaine St. George at the P. Jay Sharp Theatre...has Italian blood, and shows it with her passion and sense of humor. She also teases men; we deserve it, sometimes. In her show "The Girl That I Marry," she sings, with clear and melodious tones, tens of songs about love; all types of love and desire." - America Oggi

Just Around the Corner: Songs of love and longing from the 1930s



Drawing on a wicked sense of humor and a repertoire stretching from Springsteen to Gershwin, jazz singer Elaine St. George engages the audience’s minds, hearts and ears, allowing them to hear familiar songs in new, and sometimes unexpected, ways. She's performed off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons (her CD "That Old-Fashioned Love" was recorded live there) and at colleges and cabarets around the country.

Bay Windows in Boston called her "a distinctly hip performer" and New York magazine called her "a showstopping lesbian songstress."

As a Jersey Girl, St. George has always had a soft spot for Springsteen. But when she was a teenager, she says, “I was all about the movie musicals of the 1930s, so those were the first songs I turned to when I started singing. Still, I’ve always wanted to sing the songs I grew up with - Dylan, Carole King and, yes, ‘Broooce.’ Now my band and I are putting our own spin on these great songs in our shows. I’m having a ton of fun - and so are my audiences.”
