Vanessa Perea is a jazz vocalist who embodies the tradition of the masters. She has a rare ability to sing diverse styles at the highest degree of authenticity, while maintaining a beautiful sound and sweeping range.

She began her musical journey at the age of 10 when she started taking piano lessons. She stuck with it for a short while before deciding to get serious about her singing. Two years later, she began taking classical voice lessons. In high school, Vanessa performed in all the choirs, musicals and also became the primary cantor at the catholic church where her family regulary visited. In a desire to continue on her musical journey, Vanessa attended New Jersey City University (NJCU) in Jersey City, NJ to study Music Education. There she cultivated her operatic & theater technique, but, also, found that she had an unknown love for jazz. Luckily, she was able to have studied privately with grammy-nominated jazz vocalist, Roseanna Vitro. As they say, the rest is history. In 2010, Vanessa graduated with a BA in Music Education and went off to be a working jazz vocalist.


Vanessa has performed at many jazz clubs in NYC such as Smalls, Mezzrow, Dizzy's, The Roxy Hotel, The Carnegie Club, Smoke, Birdland, and more. In 2014, she released her first CD on ZOHO music entilted Soulful Days. Currently, Vanessa lives in NYC and can be seen singing at jazz clubs around town.
Vanessa Perea is poised for success. She sings with a warm and sexy sound, blessed with a great range and solid rhythmic feel. Plus she has charisma and is a beauty inside and out.Roseanna Vitrogrammy-nominated jazz vocalist
