With a repertoire running the gamut from swing to bebop to the Great American Songbook, Veronica Swift is a young but fully fledged star on the international jazz scene. Boasting a clear and lilting tone and radiant stage presence, Swift is also a master of rigorous vocal techniques like vocalese and scat. Having first gained widespread attention in high-profile collaborations with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and Chris Botti, she has developed a devoted following among WPA audiences for her appearances with Mr. Botti, with The United States Air Force Band (in our April 2019 tribute to Glenn Miller), and on our 2019 Gala stage. She demonstrates her accomplishment as a leader in this Home Delivery Plus set at Sixth & I, performing her forthcoming (March 2021) recording, This Bitter Earth, in its entirety and exploring themes of racism, sexism, and loneliness.
Featuring a Headline Artist performance plus:
Soundcheck: The Arts, Undistanced: Wynton Marsalis in conversation with Veronica Swift—part of a new WPA series.
Linger Longer: Veronica Swift takes viewers on a tour of a Spotify playlist she has curated especially for Home Delivery Plus.
