“Blessed with a sultry and expressive voice and the perfect natural instinct for classic jazz and American standards…Miss Elli Clarke is the quintessential cabaret stylist.” -William Riddle, Venetian Arts Society
Elli Clarke has worked in every facet of the music industry for over 25 years as both a major jazz artist of the highest caliber and even in artist management and booking. Her sultry voice and innate instincts have developed over this long career and she has now found her own unique niche as a truly unique and glamorous “cabaret and torch singer.”
During her multi-faceted musical career, Ingrid has performed with an impressive collection of musicians that is international in scope such as Johnny Ventura, Celia Cruz, Carlos Ponce, Camilo Sextos, Sofie, Joe Raposo, Claudia Acuna, Jerry Barnes, Katreese Barnes, Gap Band, Motor Head, My Brother’s Dream, and Matt Bianco, just to name a few.
Singing jazz standards is about exploring the unique qualities of the voice and learning how to “personalize” a song…Elli Clarke has magnificently mastered this art form…her luxurious singing voice is an exquisitely natural extension of her speaking voice. Miss Clarke delivers the American standards such as the songs of Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Cole Porter, as well as more contemporary repertory with a perfect and authentic individuality that is certain to entrance the novice as well as the connoisseur!
