Shana Farr is a true performer with the voice, the look, and the presence that seduces the crowd. On October 17th, she was awarded with the Julie Wilson Award at the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s 23rd Annual Cabaret Convention held at Jazz at Lincoln Center. She was recently the featured artist in the current issue of Cabaret Scenes, and she has received rave reviews in The New York Post, Wall Street Journal, New Jersey Star Ledger, Back Stage and numerous other publications for her performances at New York City Center, Pittsburgh Civic Light Opera, and Feinstein’s at the Regency among others. She has also been recognized for her performances with symphony orchestras such as the Missouri Symphony Orchestra and South Shore Symphony and more.
Her debut album Out Of The Shadows was released on November 30th with a live performance and celebration held at the historical Players on Gramercy Park South with a glowing review from the Wall Street Journal saying “Her voice is bright, strong and true. . .and Ms. Farr is probably the most convincing younger American to sing Noel Coward.”
The passion Shana has for music, lyrics, and characters is shared with the audience as she invites them into her world. Everything she sings from operetta and great American standards to contemporary musical theater and jazz is sung from within this beautiful woman. Her lush voice matches her elegance as she uses all of her different colors. Whether it is a delicate pianissimo floating through the audience with angst, a mature, strong belt that makes a statement, or a moment of fun and laughter, Shana is an intelligent, giving performer who “excels at direct, unaffected expression of emotion” (Back Stage), “delivers a powerful ballad” (Times Square Chronicles), and “demonstrates a surprising flair for comedy.” (Back Stage). Simply put, as Joey Reynolds said on WOR-AM Radio, “Shana Farr, you are a BROADWAY STAR…you’re built for that!”
