"For those of you new to town or living under a rock for the last twenty years, Mady Kaye is Austin's premier straight-up, can-do-it-all vocalist. Equally comfortable laying down cabaret tunes or jazz standards... she sails through Porter classics like Night and Day... and Just One of Those Things. Kaye's live shows are especially buoyant when she's tackling playful material like Porter's. In her hands his high-minded bawdiness really comes across with its intended and sophisticated zing." (Rita DeBellis, Calendars Editor, The Good Life) Mady Kaye is also a member and musical director of The Austin Carolers, an a cappella vocal quartet, and a member and band leader of The Beat Divas, a jazz/pop female vocal trio. She writes and arranges songs for both groups. In addition to performing, Ms. Kaye is a studio vocal producer and sought-after vocal instructor. The Austin Chronicle's "Critic's Picks" named her the best professional voice instructor in Austin.
