    Susana Sheiman is one of the most personal and acclaimed voices of contemporary Spanish jazz

    Warm and rich tone, wide register, intense and powerful expressiveness are just few of Susana Sheiman’s singing features. Born in Madrid where she initiated her career mainly as a soul singer, Susana moved later to Barcelona, Spain’s main jazz scene. She quickly started touring and recording with some of the most acclaimed musicians and bands either locally and internationally. Susana Sheiman has worked with the Barcelona Jazz Orchestra, Jesse Davis, Frank Wess, Nicholas Payton, Ignasi Terraza and Brad Leali among many others.

    A fervent admirer of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Judy Garland, Kay Starr and Nancy Wilson, singers who have inspired Susana to create her own personal style.
