Vocalist Meryl Zimmerman approaches the songs she sings with a sense of sophistication, creativity, and joy. Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Meryl began singing jazz in her high school vocal jazz ensemble. It was here she began experimenting with scat singing, a talent she has continued to hone ever since then, drawing frequent comparisons to Ella Fitzgerald. Meryl has performed at bars, lounges, weddings, corporate events, and many other venues throughout the tri-state area, New Orleans, and St. Louis. She has a Masters degree in Jazz Performance from the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Peter Eldridge, Theo Bleckmann, and Kate McGarry.
Ashley Gonzalez is a singer and songwriter in the jazz idiom using standards and original music to create a very personal body of work. Crafting her music as "story," her interpretations are carefully set with textures and richly-colored harmonies. Ashley served as a Betty Carter Jazz Ahead resident at the Kennedy Center for her creative arrangements and unique compositional style. After years of being self-taught, Ashley received her masters degree under the direction of Peter Eldridge, Kate McGarry, and Theo Bleckmann as a Manhattan School of Music scholarship student. The Ashley Gonzalez Group performs in New York City and the surrounding regions.
