In addition to headlining at jazz clubs, concert halls and festivals with her solo band, Carolyn has been a member of the iconic jazz/rock group Steely Dan for over a decade, appearing as a featured back-up vocalist on every album and every tour, including the multi Grammy Award winning “Two Against Nature”. Carolyn has toured and performed with Al Jarreau, Michael McDonald, Boz Scaggs, Enya, and The Charles Mingus Big Band, Hank Jones, Catherine Russell, and was recently featured at Jazz At Lincoln Center. In late 2017, Carolyn made her acting debut and received critical acclaim for her performance in the Off-Broadway musical, “Cross That River”.
Carolyn has recently recorded with Helen Sung and Scott Reeves, and is currently recording her next solo album with a quintet of jazz heavyweights including Christian Sands on piano, Myron Walden on tenor saxophone, Richie Goods on bass, and Rodney Green on drums. “That Carolyn Leonhart can hold her own as a superlative vocalist is undeniable,” reports JazzTimes and All About Jazz adds, “It’s rare to hear a singer who has both chops and discernible style. Carolyn Leonhart is one of the few: it’s a pleasure to hear the intelligence and nuance in her delivery.”
