PATRIZIA FERRARA Short Info

Bei Patrizia Ferrara reicht der Gesang aus um uns im Innersten zu erreichen. Hier singt eine Frau aus Fleisch und Blut, keine computerisiert- perfektionierte Unpersönlichkeit, sondern eine Sängerin, die all ihre Empfindungen in die Songs, ja sogar jedes einzelne gesungene Wort, legt.

Patrizia Ferrara’s singing is enough in itself to strike a deep chord within us.
Here is the work of a woman of flesh and blood; not a computer-enhanced impersonal character, rather a singer who puts her heart and soul not only into each song, but into each word that’s sung.

Patrizia Ferrara is the younger child of two, born into the bicultural home of her Austrian mother and Sicilian father. Settled on the border of Italy and South Austria, she grew up with the traditional sounds of Naples and the pop music of the 80's.

She was only sixteen years old when she moved away from home, to Vienna, the capitol of Austria and started connecting with musicians and soon performed on a regular basis with the Brazilian singer Celia Mara. This wonderful mix of cultures and the bilingual upbringing made it easy for her to move between languages and cultures and so the road continued internationally, working with African, Columbian, Turkish and Cuban artists until she found the music that made her go to school and study. “JAZZ.”

The study of voice and piano at the Gustav Mahler Conservatory in Vienna and graduated with honors in 2002.

In 2004 she met the singer and composer Dean Bowman and the pianist Danny Grissett in Europe. In 2005 she did her first New York tour with Dean Bowman sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Institute. The music was based on vocal duets with a tremendous love for soul music and vocalese at the same time. In 2005 Patrizia Ferrara moved to New York.

Sharing her talents with sick children, she performed for Hospital Audiences Inc., New York and traveled several times to Palestine giving public performances with the help of Defense Children International and the Italian General Consul in Jerusalem.

Since her arrival to New York in 2005, Patrizia Ferrara has been a part of various showcases and performed at the Blue Note late night groove series, Brooklyn Academy Of Music (BAM), 55 Bar, Zinc Bar, Smoke, and the Austrian Cultural Forum.

Patrizia Ferrara performed her great talent in more than 10 countries and captures her audiences with her beautiful, soothing voice and outstanding charisma. Her original music is genuine, and warm.
