vocalist/pianist/composer/lyricist

NapuaAtPianoForPageFresh, strong, sensual, exquisite. . . the voice of Napua Davoy has been heard on concert stages and major jazz venues in New York City and around the world, where she has toured extensively throughout Russia with her longtime collaborator, Russia’s famed pianist/composer Andrei Kondakov. Based in New York City, she recently sang to a sold-out Birdland in New York City, with a program that evoked joy, Brazil, sensuality, freedom and love, ranging the gamut from ballads to scat, moving listeners from joyful clapping to hushed attention. She was selected to open the 2002 Hartford Jazz Series, and has been a featured performer at festivals in the United States, Australia, as well as Odessa, Kiev, Petrosavodsk, Murmansk, Nischninovgorod, among others. A person whose spirituality, energy, and love of life shines through every song, Napua wins fans wherever and whenever she steps onstage.NapuaSecondPhotoForPage

Napua can be heard on two CD’s, the newest “Until We Meet Again,” and her debut album, “A Little Time For Me.” She is available for bookings at clubs, festivals, and private events – as a soloist accompanying herself on piano, or with her own ensembles of various sizes.

What the critics say:

“Napua Davoy is one of the most extraordinary song stylists in today’s jazz world. She is a unique and beautiful performer and is destined for stardom.” — George Wein

“A hard swinging pianist and singer with deeper roots in Miles Davis than Hildegarde, with considerable keyboard chops and charm to spare, not to mention a trio that really gets behind her.” —Will Friedwald, Village Voice

“Singing original songs that have the shape and feel of familiar standards, Davoy reveals a strong, sultry and sensuous voice that at times recalls the emotional expressiveness and musical spontaneity of the late Sarah Vaughn.” —The San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Until We Meet Again’ is the perfect marriage of material and artist, a match made in jazz heaven.” —Town & Village, New York City

“From the first note of her full-bodied, sultry voice, it was clear that this is an important singer. On top of that, she is a swinging piano player!” —The Resident, New York City

“Davoy navigates lush harmonies and wends her way down beautiful melodies dancin’ and groovin’ all the way.” —Town & Village, New York City
