Some snaps from this Saturday at my sound check for a private event at Cipriani 42nd Street. It was duo-time with my bassist only; amazing sound in such a big hall. The clients were international and we had fun showing them what real New York jazz is about these days - at least my version of it :) Ti amo Cipriani!
There seems to be something about high altitudes + jazz + me lately. I had the privilege of performing at the top floor of newly restored building 100 Barclay Street in Tribeca earlier this week. The stunning penthouse was the backdrop for a private event. Loved jazzing it up with my band. - Seena
Thankful to have played one of the most respected venues in New York City; The Rainbow Room. Here are a few snaps from before the gig.
My favorite things to do before a busy work-week of performing shows with my jazz band and nailing my many modeling gigs:
1. SLT Class : I love starting my Sundays off with an SLT class. SLT stands for Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone. It's a super intense 50-minute class done on a mega-former machine. Love, love, love it! Without a doubt the most demanding fitness class I've ever tried in New York - and I've tried many. I always walk out of there in a better mood than when I started and feeling sore all over.
2. Sweet Green : Right after finishing SLT I usually head in the direction of the closest Sweet Green for lunch. Super tasty salads that are healthy and sourced from local farmers? Yes please :) My favorite salad at the moment is Spicy Sabzi - it's vegan <3 To drink I usually get the Iced Chai - delicious!
3. Prepare for the week ahead : Lastly I clean up the house and prepare for Monday. I love having music from a Spotify-playlist in the background, - anything with 'chill' or 'lounge' in the title will do :) My music is also on Spotify, including my version of 'Dream a Little Dream of Me' which so many of you said you like on my instagram. Thank you guys and have a a great week ahead!
It was an honor being the first jazz vocalist in the world to perform at The Observation Deck of The Freedom Tower, the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. Performing 100 floors above ground was surreal. Thanks to everyone who came out and of course to my band, The Suits.
