Vanisha Gould is a transfixing storyteller, singer, and songwriter who moved to New York in 2015 from her homeland of Simi Valley, CA. Gould was inspired by Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Joni Mitchell, Carmen McRae and Ella Fitzgerald. She successfully developed her own sound as a singer, composer, and band leader.

Gould performs her own original songs as well as music from the Great American Songbook at jazz clubs in NYC, such as Dizzy’s Club, as a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, and overseas.

Some of her collaborations include “In Her Words” with Lucy Yeghiazaryan (2021), “Day Dream” with Eden Bareket (2021), “New York Moment” with the JC Hopkins Biggish Band (2020), and “No Fear. Full of Love” with Giedrius Nakas (2018) among others.

The Vanisha Gould Quartet includes some of New York’s best rising talent and boasts a chemistry that is palpable from the stage.
