Sarah Gromko, singer
Sarah Gromko’s voice encompasses the range of a fine dramatic actress, in turn conversational, sultry, emotional, and angelic. —The Victory Review
Sarah Gromko’s husky vocals are a solid contribution…delivering an upper-echelon change of setting. —Mark Sabbatini, All About Jazz
[Sarah’s] music is truly inspired/inspiring. [She is] such a complete musician. —Javier Arau: Saxophonist, Acclaimed Educator, and DownBeat magazine and ASCAP Award winner
Compared with Sarah Vaughan, Patsy Cline, and Annie Ross by professional musicians and critics alike, Sarah Gromko’s vocals “show a deep sense of artistic maturity.” Her debut recording as a bandleader was nationally recognized as “intimate,” “eclectic,” and “undeniably killer.” The attention led to a licensing contract with Universal Records.
Over the years, Sarah has been recorded as a background singer, a featured jazz vocalist, and for both national and international commercials and TV spots (i.e. Showtime, PBS). Under her direction, Gromko’s jazz quartet held residencies at New York City’s Puppets Jazz Bar, Kavehaz/Mannahatta, and Blue Water Grill. Her live work focuses on original and jazz standards, and she enjoys surprising her audiences with clever, yet subtle, original arrangements.
Sarah has been singing professionally since age 15 and has been trained vocally by teachers from the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, and jazz stages. She also has a film-scoring degree from Berklee College of Music.
