    Canada-born, New York City-resident Amy Cervini vocalist and songwriter Amy Cervini first came to the attention of many listeners as a member—together with fellow vocalists Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou—of a great little trio called Duchess, which featured nice arrangements and close harmony √† la Boswell Sisters, but with a wholly contemporary bent.

    Amy has performed around the world, from Jerusalem to Monterey, California, in clubs and concert halls—including Carnegie Hall. She's just released her fifth recording (her third on Anzic), "No One Ever Tells You".

    The New York Times enthused, calling her "a thoughtful and broad-minded jazz singer", and AllMusic calls her "a stand-out of her generation".
