Cassandre McKinley has a vocal style that walks the line between jazz and soul – a voice that is commanding, vibrant and rich – with “chops” to spare.

After having released several independent straight-ahead jazz albums (“Right In Front Of You” and “Stay The Night”) McKinley released her third – crossing over with a “soul” inspired album “Baring The Soul-The Music Of Marvin Gaye” which received critics approval in several major music publications. The album caught the attention of well-established jazz label MAXJAZZ and an extended re-release followed titled “Til Tomorrow – Remembering Marvin Gaye”. The album had great success in straight-ahead jazz and cross-over markets both nationally and abroad and legitimized her career as a prominent new artist.

McKinley has toured and performed in venues across the country and her music has been heard on over 500 national and international radio stations, cable and internet music outlets including XM radio, Pandora and iheart Radio.

“There’s a music style called jazzsoul (we made it up) and our anointed queen is Boston native Cassandre McKinley.”
-Boston Globe
