Welcome British Jazz Artist Janet Evra

"Evra little thing she does is magic." Advantage News

From Gloucester, England, Janet Evra is a vocalist, bassist, composer, and songwriter now based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA where she is a 2019-2020 Artist in Residence at the Kranzberg Arts Foundation. Evra blends traditional bossa nova, samba, and latin jazz with modern influences and an indie twist to produce fresh, lush, original music. Evra sings in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

Evra performs on premier stages across the United States and Europe.

Evra released her debut album, Ask Her to Dance, featuring her original music and signature style, to critical acclaim in 2018. Evra is joined on the album by her all star band featuring Adam Maness on piano, Will Buchanan on guitar, Khamali Cuffie-Moore on trumpet, and Montez Coleman on drums, among others. All About Jazz wrote: "Each player is in top form, while Evra's every vocal phrase seems to be punctuated with a smile that cheekily gives away the tone of the whole record." Evra released a follow-up single Wish You Were Here in spring 2019.

Evra released a video series "Janet Evra Live @ The Kranzberg" in summer 2019. The series includes live performances of Janet's original music and stylish reinterpretations of popular song, including a samba take on Blondie's "Call Me" and an uptempo arrangement of Koop's "Koop Island Blues."

For her most recent project Evra performed in a special show with Brazilian jazz guitar star Diego Figueiredo at the historic Grandel Theatre in St. Louis in fall 2019.
