LEA DELARIA has distinguished herself in every form of entertainment that she touches: jazz musician, Broadway diva, actor, writer and stand-up comic. Its easy to see why Ben Brantley of The New York Times describes Lea as, Every inch a star. Her first jazz album, Play It Cool, was released on Warner Jazz in 2000. Hailed by the Times of London as Best Jazz Album of 2001, it featured the single The Ballad of Sweeney Todd, which remained at #1 on Jazz radio in the states for two months. Q Magazine commented Lea DeLaria is blessed with one of the most beautiful voices around, while Time Out claimed the gal can certainly swing, and the Guardian summed her up as talks like a coffee grinder, and sounds like a cross between Ella Fitzgerald and a Broadway diva. Her second album, Double Standards which debuted on the Billboard Jazz Chart at #6 received rave reviews in the UK and US press; the tracks Call Me and Philadelphia get regular radio play on both sides of the Atlantic.
