BioSarah DeLeo is a contemporary jazz vocalist noted for ballads and music with a mellow "Peggy Lee vibe." Notable appearances include WNYC's The Greene Space, Cornelia Street Cafe, and the Iridium Jazz Club. She has been cited in The Jazz Singers: The Ultimate Guide by Scott Yanow, The New Face of Jazz by Cicily Janus, and the upcoming ninth edition of the Penguin Guide to Jazz . In October 2005 Sarah released her debut CD, "The Nearness of You", which garnered critical acclaim and introduced Sarah's work to both national and international audiences. Her follow up to that release is 2009's "I'm In Heaven Tonight", another inspired collection of songs that combines the old and the new.
