ABOUT

Growing up in a jazz-loving household, San Francisco Bay Area vocalist Sherie Julianne was raised on bossa nova and bebop. But her path to singing Brazilian music was long and discursive, with many a twist along the way. After more than a decade of devoting herself to the vast and treasure-filled Brazilian Songbook, she makes an emphatic statement with her wondrous debut album 10 Degrees South. Collaborating with master pianist/arranger Marcos Silva, a Rio de Janeiro native who has worked extensively with legendary Brazilian and American jazz musicians, she introduces herself with an enchanting and sophisticated collection of songs.
