She has been compared to the amazing Dinah Washington with vocals described as soulfully seductive, mighty and sumptuous. A classically trained singer, Tammy McCann is an internationally experienced jazz vocalist whose powerful, sultry and mellifluous voice paints pictures and tells stories by vocally merging jazz, gospel and classical music.
