Veronica Swift

A recent finalist at the prestigious Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, vocalist Veronica Swift makes her Annenberg Center debut backed by Philadelphia-based pianist Tim Brey. This rising jazz star is already known for vocals that are "soulfully infused with an infectious passion for jazz past and future.” (All About Jazz) With expansive musical influences, a commanding stage presence and a renowned jazz lineage, Swift is carving out her own identity in the world of jazz and beyond, and she’s just getting started.

“Her startling command and improbably mature delivery have made her a cause célèbre among fans of traditional jazz, and landed her on stages with some of the music’s finest improvisers.” -The New York Times
