by critics and musicians of the highest caliber for her full-bodied, emotionally expressive voice
and distinctive phrasing. A NYC-based singer songwriter, Gies has toured and given workshops

and recorded with a stunning array of jazz greats, including Howard Alden, Gene Bertoncini,
Gerald Cannon, Joe Cohn, John Hicks, Sherman Irby, Willie Jones III, Romero Lubambo,
Russell Malone, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Eric Reed. A prolific songwriter, Gies recently penned the
lyrics for songs by Brazilian composer Manu Lafer and teamed with Howard Alden to record this

of their own, and are lauded worldwide for their distinctive jazz-pop style. As a licensed Speech

Jazz Waves host Alan Steadman sums it up: 'At a time when there are many vocalists who think
they are jazz singers, it's great to hear someone who really is . . .'
