Charmaine Clamor At Kitano in NYC

Charmaine Clamor- for the Grateful Web

Charmaine Clamor is the first Filipina jazz singer to find success on mainstream American radio. Her album, "Searching for the Soul," has been heard on more than 100 stations around America, and peaked at #1 on the CMJ jazz charts in several markets. Critics and disc jockeys have compared Charmaine's sultry alto voice to legendary vocalists like Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, and Cassandra Wilson, all the while recognizing her individual style and sound.

A longtime member of the renowned vocal harmony ensemble CRESCENDO, Charmaine is also the first Pinay to headline the world-famous Catalina Bar & Grill jazz club, in Hollywood, which presented Charmaine at their sold-out 2005 Filipino-American Jazz festival. In 2006, she headlined the Manila International Jazz Festival in her birth country, the Philippines.

Originally from the provincial town of Subic-Zambales, Charmaine Clamor began her singing career at age 3, entertaining passengers (whether they liked it or not!) in the back of buses traveling to Manila. As she grew, she began providing piano accompaniment while her mother sang kundiman (Filipino torch songs) and English language classics. From these early memories comes her love of the Great American Songbook.

One of the founding members of JazzPhil-USA, a non-profit organization which promotes Filipino-American jazz artists in the United States, Charmaine is an American citizen and proud Pinay who is honored to perform at concerts that celebrate the Filipino culture.
