Straight-aheasd vocal jazz with a driving sense of swing and a modern sensibility, encompassing standards and newer compositions. Eve Seltzer I delighted to once again be a resdent of her native St. Louis. Eve Seltzer started singing professionally at the age of eight, in the children's choruses of the St. Louis Symphony and the Opera Theatre of St. Louis. Eve majored in classical voice in the joint program between the New England Conservatory of Music and Tufts University, before transfering to Columbia in New York. In New York, Eve continued studying music, and for several years could be spotted on the coffee house circuit singing original songs with her acoustic guitar. In 2002, Eve started taking jazz voice lessons at the New School with Julia Dollison, and realized that she had found her musical niche. She subsequently studied with Miles Griffith, Marion Cowings, and Barry Harris. Projects she has participated in include the Billy Harper 60 Voices project and the gypsy jazz combo Franglais, where she brings her St. Louis sensibility to French jazz. Her singing is distinctive, blending polish and earthiness, always joyfully embracing the American jazz tradition.
