Suzi Stern, jazz vocalist, has delighted audiences across the United States. Now based in the Live Music Capital of the World (Austin, Texas), Suzi performs at jazz festivals and clubs around the world. A respected jazz educator, Suzi also makes time to present her innovative vocal workshops for both large and small groups. Her latest CD, "Inside Stories", has received acclaim from such eminent composers and performers as Joe Henderson, Sheila Jordan, David Friesen, Red Mitchell, Jerry Hahn, David Shire, and Bobby McFerrin.

Born in New York to professional musicians (her father was a violinist and her mother, a singer), Suzi studied dance at the American Ballet Theater and Joffrey for 15 years before turning to music full time in the late 1970's. Suzi studied classical voice for 10 years, but she was most influenced by her studies with jazz vocal wizard Bobby McFerrin. She also learned jazz theory and phrasing from her studies with jazz saxophonists Rob Lockart, Paul Ostermayer, and John Mills.

In 1997, Suzi was one of the winners of JAZZIZ Magazine's "Vocals on Fire" competition for Best New Vocalist.
