From: CA, United States
Thisbe Vos, originally from The Netherlands, joined the UK’s Number One Swing Band “The Jive Aces” at seventeen and performed with them in clubs, festivals and national radio & television shows in over 30 cities in Europe and America. She toured with the band for several years before embarking on a search for her own sound.
In 2008, she set off for Los Angeles in pursuit of recording a solo album of traditional jazz songs and original songs she had written over the years. With the support of veteran bassist Henry Franklin, she gathered a group of top jazz musicians to back her on the project. The ensemble was made up of veteran musicians with an average of forty years experience and included gold-recording drummer Donald Dean. This album, entitled "Sophistication", debuted in September 2011 and featured six standards and six original “standards”.
A second album, "Under Your Spell", consisting of seven standards and five originals was recorded in the summer of 2012 with fan support and utilized largely the same personnel. The project featured more elaborate arrangements and instrumentation, exploring different genres of jazz while still maintaining a classic feel. "Under Your Spell" was released in April 2013 to critical acclaim and received airplay on over 230 radio stations in the US & Canada, landing in the CMJ jazz chart and occupying the #1 position on the Music Choice Jazz chart for many months.
Miss Vos can currently be found performing in the greater Los Angeles area, having recently performed at the Cicada Club in downtown Los Angeles and at the famous Lighthouse Cafe in Hermosa Beach.
A third album is in the works.
