Music has always been present in the life of Amsterdam jazz and soul singer Sherry Dyanne. Her father used to play the records of diverse artists like Tom Jones, Aretha Franklin, the stars of Stax and Motown, as well as Caribbean legends and Dutch folksy singers. As Sherry herself says: "I could dance before I could walk." Although she started out as a math teacher, she soon realized that music was her path of choice and in 2008 she decided to go for a music career. And she was successful: she shared stages with Michael Franti, Candy Dulfer, Trijntje Oosterhuis and George Duke. With her voice Dyanne recalls singers like Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington. Her debut album Sing Me A Song was released in 2011. She produced the album herself and it also includes covers of long-forgotten jazz and soul songs, alongside some originals.
