"Velvet and wine."That's what singing and songwriting legend Leon Russell (This Masquerade, A Song for You) says about vocalist Connye Florance, whose deliciously smooth jazz vocals won her accolades as Jazz Discovery's "Vocalist of the Year" in 2000, just after her 1999 independent release, , Turn My Heart, won a Nashville Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. Her music has gained international attention from jazz fans and adult contemporary listeners alike.
Connye's dynamic delivery and creamy-rich style have delighted countless audiences - from nightclub and theater performances on and off Broadway -to headline and featured appearances at area jazz festivals and venues; alongside such notables as Steinway artist Beegie Adair, master trumpeter Randy Brecker; saxophonist Kirk Whalum; with Nashville Jazz Orchestra, and with her regularly stellar ensemble of musicians. Critics consistently call Connye's style "warm... captivating"..."; "like French silk pie; rich and delicious." Her fans simply call her "the real deal."
