Rhiannon is a vocal artist with a vision of music as a vehicle for innovation, healing, transformation, and social change. A gifted singer, performance artist, composer, and master teacher, Rhiannon has been bringing her potent blend of jazz, world music, improvisation and storytelling to audiences for four decades paving a unique path as an independent artist. Collaborations include the all-women’s jazz ensemble Alive!, a cappella ensembles SoVoSo and WeBe3, Bobby McFerrin and Voicestra, the instrumental trio Spontaneous and the improvised theatre piece with Japanese dancer Shizuno Nasu:The Ocean Regards Us All As One. Rhiannon has six albums on her own label and many collaborations with other artists. Rhiannon’s book about her life and teaching methods, Vocal River, The Skill and Spirit of Improvisation, was published in 2013. The powerful body-based vocal improvisation and sound healing process that Rhiannon teaches internationally includes a year-long training called All The Way In.
“A fabled underground figure in vocal jazz, Rhiannon ... shows what heights jazz singing can reach when it combines disciplined musicianship with utter fearlessness.”
