Barbara Levy Daniels, Jazz Vocalist 30s Singer from East Amherst, NY


$100 - $250 per hour
Ray Charles heard Barbara Levy Daniels sing when she was only 12 years old. He was asked by the president of ABC Paramount Records to listen in as she auditioned for a label deal. Charles said, “Sign her right away”, and they did.

Over the next few years, Barbara Lyons (as she called herself then) traveled from her home in Buffalo to NYC where she performed and recorded singles written by Carole King and arranged by Dick Wess (“Mack the Knife”), among other Brill Building luminaries. She also recorded a children's album for Chubby Jackson, Woody Herman's bass player.

After taking a break from performing, Barbara celebrated her return with the release of her CD titled “They're Writing Songs Of Love”. That was followed by her second album, “Peel Me a Grape”. Both records received rave reviews.

She performs regularly again, having graced stages as nearby as NY State and as distant as Cuba and Vietnam.

Barbara has studied with music giants Sweet Honey in the Rock, Sheila Jordan, Mark Murphy, Janet Planet, and presently with the amazing Nancy Kelly.

“It's been a pure joy to have Nancy Kelly as my mentor and producer, along with the great John DiMartino, as arranger and musical director. I look forward to working on future projects with them”, says Barbara.
