Roberta Gambarini

1972 -

Origin: Italy

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Vocal jazz

Born into a jazz-loving family in Torino, Italy, jazz vocalist Robert Gambarini grew up listening to her father's record collection and was enthralled by singers such as Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday. At 17, she was singing in jazz clubs around Northern Italy and moved to Milan the following year, where she turned heads participating in various jazz competitions. After a decade of touring the Italian jazz circuit and releasing local recordings, she moved to Boston in 1998, on a scholarship from the New England Conservatory, and later to NYC, where she quickly became a staple of the jazz scene. In 2006, she released her acclaimed American debut album, the Grammy-nominated Easy to Love, followed by You Are There in 2007, with pianist Hank Jones, and So in Love in 2009.
