Glennis Houston Jazz Group

BandJazzBlues

I am a dynamic vocalist working with the highest calibre professional musicians in the Calgary area. We do not just play music, but provide a full entertainment experience, working as a duo for quieter more intimate occasions (guitar and voice), or a larger group for more exuberant venues.

Biography

Glennis has been singing for 20 years, starting with musical theatre, then pursuing a masters in classical voice, and finally finding her way to jazz and blues, which is where she feels most comfortable and finds it easiest to express herself.

Influences have been as varied as Ella & Billie, right through to Cheryl Fisher, Dianne Reeves, Anita O'Day, and Holly Cole.

The "guys" each have their own styles and influences, but the most important thing is their individual creativeness, experimentalist, openness and eagerness to pursue any and all avenues open to them.
