Short Biography

Original jazz in a traditional style is what defines jazz singer/songwriter Thisbe Vos.

Born in The Netherlands, the Dutch singer began her musical adventure as a teenager, when she joined the UK's No 1 Swing Band The Jives Aces for several tours of Europe and North America. Visiting over 30 cities in 20+ countries before the age of 21, it was during those tours that she decided to start writing original songs in the styles of the 1930s, 40s and 50s.

In 2008, she set out for Los Angeles in search of musicians who would complement her vocals on a classic yet contemporary-sounding album featuring a mix of jazz standards and her own jazz originals.

Six years later, she has released two albums on her personal record label, Prime Productions, and has built a respectable and steadily growing following of jazz lovers worldwide.

Her sophomore album “Under Your Spell”, released in 2013, received airplay on over 230 jazz radio stations in the US and Canada, and spent over 15 weeks on top of the US Cable TV Jazz Chart. It was also licensed by Mood Media for commercial use in restaurants and hotels worldwide.

In August 2014, she was nominated by the International Music & Entertainment Association as Best Jazz Artist of the Year, and her original jazz song “Shanghai Blues“ was nominated as Best Jazz Song of the Year.

Most recently, she has been making appearances in select venues in the greater Los Angeles area, including the Cicada Club in downtown and the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach.

Thisbe states that her inspiration comes from classic jazz singers, among whom most importantly Ella Fitzgerald, and from her extensive travels. As a songwriter, she is influenced by the Gershwin brothers, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. Through her continued writing of jazz originals, she hopes to make a meaningful contribution to the future repertoire of the vocal jazz genre.
