Kimberly Hawkey, an award-winning multi-genre vocalist, is developing her craft in the Catskill mountains and NYC. Inspired by great lyrics and melodies of the last century, Kimberly draws from best-loved American songs ranging from jazz to folk music. She is the vocalist/lyricist of a hot jazz band, The Swingaroos, and the founder of Catskills-based collective, Elvanelle Music, which aims to build community through song. Ms. Hawkey's Big Band-era sound earned her praise as "a high-octane lead singer" (Sarasota Observer), while has called her "a delightfully fresh-voiced treat". In 2017, the world saw the release of her debut album titled "Elvanelle & The Escape Act"; a time-traveling journey through style and sentiment when enjoyed from start to finish. While Kimberly can be heard singing with the finest traditional jazz and big bands in Manhattan, she is also a dedicated music educator with 10 years experience in vocal and piano instruction. She offers Jazz Singing, A Capella Improv, American Song, and Musical Theatre Audition workshops to musicians of all ages.
