Celebrating their 24th anniversary this year, New York Voices is the Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble renowned for their excellence in jazz and the art of group singing. Their interests are rooted in jazz, but often Brazilian, R & B, classical, and pop influences are infused with equal creativity and authenticity. The group consists of Darmon Meader, Peter Eldridge, Kim Nazarian, and Lauren Kinhan.
NYV has made many guest appearances on recordings and live performances that have earned them critical acclaim and demand in a variety of musical settings. Their performances can be heard on CDs such as the Grammy Award-winning, the Latin Grammy-winning, Brazilian Dreams with the great Paquito D’Rivera, A Love Affair—the Music of Ivan Lins, and many more.
They have appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, The Kennedy Center, Zurich Opera House, and the list goes on. They have performed at many jazz festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival, The New Orleans Jazz and Blues Heritage Festival and now at Festival Miami.
Along with their extensive concert performances, New York Voices also works in the field of education, giving workshops and clinics to high school and college music students. Individually, the four members are involved in a variety of projects including solo performances and recordings, teaching, writing and arranging.
