BIOGRAPHY

Jazmarae is a powerful vocalist and an earnest songwriter. Coming from a long line of successful jazz players, she has developed a soulful sound all her own that roots her diverse background in a melancholy blend of jazz, blues, and pop influences. Jazmarae plants herself firmly in front of her talented band of guitars, keys, drums, and vocal harmonies, proclaiming confidently the ownership of her life experiences and expelling them atop of grooves that grab the audience until the rush of their release.

A talented organizer and promoter, Jazmarae has put on successful shows and performed at music venues internationally including Seattle’s Triple Door, New York City’s Silvana, Rotterdam’s BIRD, Berlin’s Radio Eins, and Rome’s Yellow Bar. She has shown her musical versatility with a wide variety of acts and in many different styles – ranging from singing jazz with the NATO band in Italy to performing as a multi-instrumentalist in the electronic indie pop duo, SØLTREE. She has shared memorable stages with Allen Stone, Mr. Sipp, Ruby Wilson, and Leroy Jones; has recorded on albums with the National Park’s Arrowhead Jazz Band and has played at numerous festivals including Italy's Tuscia In Jazz Festival, St. Louis, Missouri's Blues at the Arch, Washington State’s Chinook Fest, and New Orleans French Quarter Fest.

Over the past few years Jazmarae has been living in New Orleans, Louisiana. During her residency in the city she has had the pleasure of working with music producer Andrew Elmo Price of Native Swing Studios on her upcoming album, “Start Over,” set to be released March 28th 2019. The two singles off of the album, “Don’t Stop,” and “Sparks Fly,” are currently available on all digital streaming platforms.

She recently released “Sparks Fly,” the second single from her full-length album, “Start Over,” and has recorded and performed with a number of other artists at venues around town.

”When I first moved here, I didn’t have a lot of gigs, so I spent a lot of time writing,” she said of the material that comprises “Start Over.” “A lot of the musicians I met really believed in the music and offered up their talents, many at the invitation of bassist-producer Elmo Price.

JAZMARAE AND EVE BERRINGTON OF SØLTREE LIVE ON RADIO EINS

It doesn’t sound like anything else that’s come out of the Seattle pop scene lately. It’s not stripped-down folk, and it’s not hand-clapping tent-revival indie Americana.

The sound she turned to is closer to the stylistic neighborhood of Pickwick’s neo-soul, funk thing or maybe to the increasingly popular soul sound of Allen Stone. But it has a smoky element that neither of those acts does.
— Patt Muir - Yakima Herald, Yakima, WA
Beebe’s sound is jazzy, smoky, soulful, groovy, and is marked by some of the most infectious hooks I’d hear the entire weekend... it was only when I saw her perform that I realized, Oh, SHE’S the one I’ve been hearing about!
— Dustin Rei - Seattle Wave, Seattle, WA
