Introducing Samantha’s latest CD, “Day In – Day Out

Samantha Carlson CD Cover126x134Music is Samantha’s passion and her life. She sings the classic standards from the 1920s through today, as well as jazz, big band, show-tunes, country, oldies, classical, opera, and pop … (English, Italian, Spanish, German, & French), but she identifies herself mainly as a jazz/standards singer. Raised in a musical family, both parents are vocalists and instrumentalists. Their influence was very strong. They always encouraged her passion for music, and to follow her dreams. Her other influences include Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, Nat King Cole, Josh Groban, and Andrea Bocelli.

Samantha has performed alongside local and international celebrities such as Nick Clooney (2011), Bucky & Martin Pizzarelli (2009), Maxine Brown (2007), Hilary Kole (2009, 2010), and Kevin Covais of American Idol (2006). She has performed at “Birdland”, the legendary jazz club in New York City, as a guest artist in 2009 and 2010. Since 2009, Samantha has been the female vocalist for SwingTime Big Band — Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky/Indiana’s premiere 17-piece swing band.
