Jazz Room Series at Home<br>Veronica Swift


Veronica Swift is rapidly becoming one of the most in-demand vocalists in jazz, after growing up with her parents, pianist Hod O’Brien and vocalist Stephanie Nakasian.  She earned second prize in the 2015 Thelonious Monk Vocal Competition, and began engagements soon after that at such jazz venues as Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola and the Telluride Jazz Festival.  More recently, she has been featured at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Michael Feinstein, The Jazz Standard, the Blue Note, with SF Jazz, and at major jazz festivals internationally.  Her main repertoire is American Popular Song classics and bebop, but she is also deeply connected to 20s and 30s tunes, opera and rock.  She also writes and acts in her own films produced by Darkstone Entertainment.  She regularly tours with the Emmet Cohen Trio.
