SUE SHERIFF is a vocal jazz musician who performs in the greater Portland, Maine area. She has been entertaining audiences young and old since she was six. Some of her vocal influences include classics such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Anita O ‘Day. She loves to sing jazz standards from the 1930’s – 1950’s along with more current material. Her rich tones marry the elegance and swing of the classic tunes well, bringing them to life for her captive audiences.
Inspired by her children, Sue previously released a nationally acclaimed CD of original children’s songs in 1998. Following the success of that album, she released a second album in 2005. In 2008, she self-published an illustrated children’s book and accompanying CD with original songs entitled In Harmony and Other Songs of Peace.
Sue recently returned to her passion for jazz and began singing in many New England venues such as Blue, Solo Bistro, Harvest on the Harbor, the Local Buzz, and the Encore Lounge in Boston, as well as multiple private functions. She is a welcome performer on any stage.
