Carolyn Lee Jones's influences and choices of genre are as broad as her vocal styling is rich. She makes standards sound new and the new sound standard. It is something of an audio calling card, the perfect representation of who she is and the musicians in her band.

Her musical journey began as a child while growing up in Nebraska. During her formative years Carolyn sang in her school choirs and studied voice. Both of her parents were gifted musicians. After graduation, the lure of a bigger city drew her to Dallas, Texas where she pursued a successful 1st career in retailing for luxury stores. Carolyn traveled the world and continued to seek out music-related opportunities by producing and performing jazz shows while on the road. In 2008, she made the decision to pursue music full time as a jazz vocalist and band leader.

With influences ranging from Julie London, Anita O'Day and Shirley Horn to Tony Bennett, Diana Krall and Laura Nyro, Carolyn Lee Jones is a melodic jazz-pop singer-stylist with a combination of rich and expressive vocals. A vibrant vocalist with a love of both jazz and modern music, Carolyn's eclectic repertoire includes beautiful renditions of familiar standards from the Great American Songbook, the evolution of vintage retro pop songs into the jazz context and new material.

Carolyn performs with her ensembles at a variety of venues, festivals, and for corporate and private events. Her extensive repertoire, combined with an outstanding band of musicians are her ingredients for a successful performance.
