Yvette Spears is a veteran of the stage, whether it be in front of a Jazz quartet or in a role for the musical theater! Her statuesque outline and grand profile illuminate her proud New Orleans heritage. Yvette has had the opportunity to share the stage with many of today's great jazz musicians. She enjoys rousing the audience with the movement and motion of jazz, as well as charming you with its lyrics. In some descriptions she considers herself a "Jazz Entertainer" and most intimately a "torch singer".
"Voices from the Jazz Boutique" is how she has themed her performances – offering a majestic flare of music covering all facets of time, category, and movements of jazz at its core. You see; Yvette is at her best when involved in a gambit of projects from combining the experience of living in New Orleans, New York and Washington, DC. It's the web of emotion and the intensity of the interpretation that she gets caught into.
When singing the songs that are embedded in her experiences, they take on new life. Yvette is at one with her songs and a dramatic overture is the outcome. Yvette's repertoire consists of an impressive range of jazz, blues, and gospel.
