ABOUT TRAE

Born a decade too late, Trae's voice embodies the heart and mind of jazz greats. His history with music stretches beyond just that of a vocalist. A musician first, (saxophone, guitar) his passion for singing took root when introduced to Musicial Theater in high school. For the past 25 years, Trae has been performing the songs that speak to him.

His influences are vast, but his voice specializes in the smooth sounds of Sinatra and the sophisticated styling of The American Songbook legends. Performing songs from tunesmiths like Mercer, Porter, Gershwin, Cahn along with a few of Sinatra's torch songs and the result is a mesmerizing mix touching on all the styles of jazz.

From The Hollywood Hills to Cape Cod, he often travels around the country entertaining at lavish events.
