Sendy arrived early to set up and played throughout the dinner party as well as sing the Happy Birthday tune to my father. She was organized and had her own equipment And played a good blend of classics and holiday tunes. Her voice was very good as in her audio clips and she played at the right volume during our chatty party. She was also very accommodating when we had several guests hijack her sound system for speeches and impromptu singalongs. Would highly recommend her to friends and would definitely use her again for any party we have that requires live music.
She first started singing at age five in her father's church in New Jersey, then went on to formalize her music education at Howard University in Washington, DC. Next, Sendy started collaborating with other musicians and singing in local DC jazz venues. "That's when my education really began," she recalls. "I'd sit in with bands or sing at open mikes just to hone my craft and develop my sound."
Sendy expresses this sound on her debut CD, "Secrets of the Soul." A collection of jazz standards reworked with Sendy's style and arrangement ideas, "Secrets of the Soul" garnered international airplay and positive reviews in the Washington Post and other publications. This illustrates the quality of her voice and the caliber of her accompanists.
But what Sendy brings to the microphone that sets her apart is passion. Whether it's joy or pain, love or loss, Sendy puts her heart and soul into each line, lyric and song - making the experience unforgettable. Backed by an incredible ensemble of musicians, Sendy Brown creates a total mood, perfect for the discriminating music-lover who desires to have more than just average background music at their event.
