About Tammy Scheffer

Vocalist and composer Tammy Scheffer has been a creative force in NYC’s vibrant music scene for the past decade. Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as “innovative, provocative and alluring”, Scheffer lends her voice to ensembles that range from progressive rock to jazz, from improvised music to modern classical music. Most recently she released new albums with Stefan Bauer’s Voyage West and Amanda Monaco’s Pirkei Avot, and performed in Joe Phillips’ premier of "The Grey Land." Scheffer performed at Carnegie Hall and the Jazz Standard in NYC, Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Revoice Festival in London, MISA festival in China, San Sebastian Jazz Festival in Spain, Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in Washington DC, Chicago Cultural Center, Virginia Arts Festival and many other premier stages.

Ms. Scheffer is a recipient of a scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation, and a scholarship from the prestigious New England Conservatory. In March 2008 she was chosen to participate in the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead workshop, a competitively selected audition-based program for promising jazz performers and composers.
