A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Patrice Williamson is a scintillating, soulful singer who swings hard and can scat with the best of them. She’s rightly been compared to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan in publications such as the Los Angeles Times and The All-Music Guide to Jazz. A favorite of the Boston music scene, Patrice’s sensitive ballad work and fluent scat style have garnered invitations to perform most recently with Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano and Terri Lyne Carrington for the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. As an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music, her work has taken her to Perugia, Italy, Seoul, South Korea, and India, where she performed with saxophonist Donald Harrison in the New Delhi Jazz Festival.

Both of her independent recordings, My Shining Hour and Free to Dream, have received high praise from jazz critics around the country. In 2014 she started The Ella Project, a multi-faceted tribute leading up to Ella Fitzgerald’s 100th birthday, including a concert series, biographical performance, and recordings, including the recently released Comes Love, an album celebrating the collaboration between Fitzgerald and legendary guitarist Joe Pass. Patrice received both her Master’s degree and an Artist Diploma from the famed New England Conservatory of Music. In addition to performing, Patrice is actively passing on her knowledge and love of the jazz tradition through teaching, ensuring that new generations will have an appreciation for this great American music.
