With a deep and versatile voice, rising star vocalist Jamile self-released her first album entitled ‘If You Could See Me Now’ in 2019. Considered “(…) sharp, confident and professional” (Martin McFie, All About Jazz), the album featured some of New York’s finest musicians Steve Wilson, Ray Gallon, Jay Leonhart, Vito Lesczak and Antonio Ciacca. Originally from Brazil, she has been a working vocalist from a young age. Currently based in New York City and one of the most sought-after vocalists on the scene, Jamile has performed at some of the most prestigious venues in NYC including Birdland, Mezzrow, Minton’s Playhouse, Smalls Jazz Club, and Jazz At Lincoln Center.  Jamile has also received high praise for her performances at the La Spezia Jazz Festival in Italy and her album release tour in Mexico. She is also a part of the project ‘Don’t Let Go’, led by Grammy nominated pianist and composer Mike Holober. Jamile captivates audiences with her unique phrasing and heartfelt tone, and impresses listeners with her virtuosity. Influenced by the vocal jazz and blues tradition, and rooted in the Brazilian rhythms, Jamile’s talent shines on any style or genre.
