At age 24, Veronica Swift is now being recognized around the country as one of the top young jazz singers on the scene: as a second–place winner in the 2015 Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition, as a guest artist with Michael Feinstein at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and on tour with the Emmet Cohen Trio. She made her first appearance at Jazz Standard in the company of her parents, the renowned jazz pianist Hod O'Brien and celebrated jazz singer and educator/author Stephanie Nakasian; and at the tender age of nine, performed on albums by saxophonists Richie Cole and Harry Allen. In addition to performing the Great American Songbook and classics from the annals of bebop and vocalese, Veronica has become a passionate devotee of the music of the 1920s and '30s, singing with bands led by Vince Giordano, Terry Waldo, and Drew Nugent. Her next Mack Avenue CD will feature tracks recorded with the great pianist Benny Green and his trio as well as her working group, the Emmet Cohen Trio.
