Elli Fordyce- Jazz Vocalist

Elli Fordyce is a 72 year old highly accomplished vocalist and actor. She has performed all over the New York Metro area and other U.S. and North American cities, including an appearance in the New York Cabaret Convention and in various festivals. Elli also has a number of acting credits, including, film, television, and stage.

Prior to returning to New York 30 years ago, Elli took time away from her musical journey. The first was to devote herself to family, and unexpectedly, the next after a devastating accident on a snowy highway en route to a gig when the car carrying her quartet and equipment crashed into a disabled truck. A successful year-long "Elli Fordyce And Her Favorite Things" tour ended abruptly, leaving scars of several kinds. Soon after, Elli stopped singing for 15 years ("Not even to sing Happy Birthday, not even in the shower") and focused firmly on much needed physical and spiritual healing.

A few years ago, she decided to start singing again, and she's been going strong. Her first CD Something STILL Cool, was nominated for a number of awards in 2008, including Top Ten Vocal Albums of 2008 by . Elli's latest CD is Songs Spun of Gold.
