With a vocal style that reveals a deep appreciation for the Great Ladies of jazz, audiences often characterize Melody Stanford as "mesmerizing," a "voice of a thousand colors," with technical acumen that is "right on the mark," as described by Boston jazz legend Bo Winiker. Melody studied with internationally-acclaimed jazz artist Meredith d'Ambrosio and has performed with jazz combos around the country, including the Winiker Trio and the Phil Sims Quartet. Melody currently resides in Chattanooga, TN, and enjoys expression as a musical polyglot. In addition to the Melody Stanford Jazz Combo, she performs and writes folk, blues, and rock music.
