AUDREY SHAKIR picture
Audrey Shakir was born into a musical family in Cleveland, Ohio – her mother was a great pianist, organist and vocal coach, and her father, whose idol was Billy Eckstine, loved to sing. She began her professional career as a pianist in a group that played the tunes of Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and others. Eventually, Audrey started leaning towards Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, all the while adding singing to her playing talents, with the vocal influences of Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Joe Williams and Jon Hendricks.

After moving to New York, she was introduced to Barry Harris, which led to numerous

gigs with him. While playing the New York scene, she became a regular performer at The Village Gate and had dates at Town Hall, the Apollo Theater and Tavern on the Green.

Audrey relocated to Atlanta in the late 1980’s, where she established herself as the city’s

most prominent jazz vocalist.
