A singer with equal parts heart, charm and individuality, Sophia Shorai has been a mainstay on the Minneapolis jazz scene for the past 10+ years.  With five self-released albums under her belt, she mixes old classics, modern revivals and her own pop gems with ease and soul.

Tommy Barbarella, a veteran of the local, national, and international music scene, was Prince’s right-hand man & keyboardist for years.  Shorai and Barbarella recorded an album together a few years ago.  It is available here.
