Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Jane Monheit
Young jazz singer Jane Monheit is now coming into her own and starting to make waves in the adult contemporary music market. She was born Nov. 3, 1977 in Oakdale, Long Island, NY. In 1998, she won a $10,000 scholarship in the Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition. She released her debut CD Never Never Land in 2000 and has proven to be equally adept at all kinds of songs. She signed with Sony and got a lot of notice for her 2004 version of Over The Rainbow which was on the soundtrack of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. It helps that she's a beutiful girl. Jane has now moved over to Concord Music Group and it appears that she finally has a label that will get behind her. Surrender is her latest CD and her Concord debut. This is an excellent version of Stevie Wonder's Overjoyed. She is married to her drummer Rick Montalbano. Jane Monheit has a beautiful voice and she has a bright furure in jazz. Here's the electronic press kit for Surrender.
