Shirley Cook is a sultry, smoky, and internationally acclaimed jazz singer from Cleveland, Ohio. Ms. Cook has been bringing her improvisational jazz vocals to the Cleveland music scene for over 36 years. She’s been noted by the Plain Dealer as having a “deep alto voice reminiscent of the late Carmen McRae.” Also, by the Call & Post for being a “dynamic jazz vocalist who has her own style with ballads and tempos.” Ms. Cook’s captivating and highly interactive performances have a way of making you feel like she’s singing to you and only you. Through her music, Ms. Cook shares her personal experiences in hopes people will be able to connect and see themselves within her music.
