A wonderfully warm, inviting and charismatic performer,
Marianne Matheny-Katz takes no prisoners as she raps an audience around her little finger.
One of Maryland's finest and busiest jazz vocalists, the
Baltimore based songstresshas been compared to
Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and Sarah Vaughn. Her pure
sound has been likened to “a beautiful horn.” While she
clearly has the “pipes” to belt out the blues and R&B, she
leans toward subtle jazz vocals and jazz standards.
