Bio

Ly Tartell enjoys an active schedule as a performer, arranger and conductor in the jazz and pop music idioms. Her solo vocal talents have been highlighted in small group, big band and orchestral settings. Her debut CD, "The Call" features originals and hip arrangements of tunes ranging in influence from Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson, Pat Metheny, Take 6 and Sandi Thom. She assembled an amazing line-up of musicians featuring the outstanding Trio of Steve Allee (piano), Jeremy Allen (bass), and Steve Houghton (drums) and special guests John Wojciechowski (saxes) and Joey Tartell (trumpet) as well as a fantastic group of vocalists including Monty Arnold, Heather Pistorius, Sue Moninger, Judy Hanson, Mark Myers, Alex Hall, Derek Fawcett and Keith Bertrand, Bryan Farina and Greg Jasperse. She also sang for the Walt Disney Corporation as a member of the groups Vocalworks and Disney’s All-American College Jazz Band Singers where she performed with such legendary artists as Joe Williams, Rosemary Clooney, Dianne Reeves, Diane Schuur, and Maureen McGovern.

As an educator, Ly is in demand as an adjudicator and clinician throughout North America and has served as a vocal clinician for Showchoir Camps of America, the Steve Zegree Vocal Jazz Camp and the Canadian Rocky Mountain Festival. She has conducted the WI, IN and IL All-State Vocal Jazz Ensembles, the MS and AZ All-State Show Choirs, as well as various district and regional choral festivals. She directed the vocal jazz, women’s, and mixed choirs at Purdue Musical Organizations (Purdue University – West Lafayette, IN) from 1997-2003.

Ly enjoys writing vocal arrangements that have been featured by high school and university ensembles throughout the world. She just released first CD, “The Call”, which will benefit School Construction Projects in Haiti. She received her BM from the University of Miami (FL) and her MM from Western Michigan University. Ly resides in Bloomington IN with husband, Joey, and daughter, Jamie.
