“…This song bird outsings a nightingale any day…. Powerful yet effortless, soulful, highly expressive, Vogel’s voice has something of a special quality about it and is as one in a million. ‘Turn up the quiet ‘ is the most exquisite, beautiful, sensational album by a female vocalist in a very long time.”

25th Rebecca Tommasi

Rebecca Tommasi can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing, but she found her True voice around four years ago in 2014 – a naturally warm voice, a voice made for jazz.

She cut her teeth at the Imperial Hotel in London’s Holborn, regularly singing to varied audiences. There she met some incredible musicians, as well as some of her most loyal fans. She has since sung at various locations across the capital, most recently at Pizza Express and the Battersea Barge, and is routinely supported by some of the finest jazz musicians around.
Her stage presence is as warm and compelling as her voice, and with an ever growing and more daring repertoire, her live performances are a must.

Influences include Anita O’day, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, Amy Winehouse, Chet Baker and Bill Evans to name just a few.
