Sherie Julianne & The John R. Burr Trio
Vocalist Sherie Julianne has spent the majority of her life making rich connections with music, leading her to a deep love of Brazilian Jazz. Raised in Miami among a musical family, Julianne heard jazz and Latin music from womb on. After a move to the Bay Area, she began studying with local jazz vocalist Daria, and eventually found herself at The Jazz School (California Jazz Conservatory) where she met Brazilian pianist Marcos Silva.
Through Silva, Julianne became immersed in the music of Brazil, and began performing with Silva’s group Sol do Brasil. After years of experience, Julianne developed her own repertoire, which became the basis for her debut recording, 10 Degrees South. Her album is filled with Brazilian classics from the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim, João Donato, and modern compositions from Silva, Chico Pinheiro, and Sergio Mendes. The core strength of Julianne’s album lies in her masterful vocal performance, as she navigates each musical setting with style and ease.
