“Ros Kindler has a voice that is effortless and sincere…I particularly enjoy her taste in backing musicians and her take on Madeleine Peyroux.”
— Jaymz Bee (JAZZ.FM 91)
An actor, singer, songwriter and teacher, born in Glasgow, Scotland, Ros Kindler grew up listening to the captivating sounds of the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday singing Cole Porter, George Gershwin or Irving Berlin. Ros later transplanted herself to Australia, where she lived for ten years, developing her skills as an actress.
She came to the world of jazz at a time when she was deeply immersed in a second career as a psychotherapist, with a busy private practice and director of a child & adolescent psychotherapy training institute. However, she found that those wonderful tunes from the 30‘s and 40‘s still resided inside her head and seemed only to be waiting to be summoned. She began studying and gradually developed a parallel career as a jazz vocalist. Ros released her debut CD “I’m Alright” in 2011, and launched her second CD, “Sugar Blues” in 2014.
Ros performs regularly at many venues throughout the city: The Jazz Bistro, The Home Smith Bar, The Reservoir Lounge, Gate 403, Lula Lounge, Mezetta’s, 120 Diner, and others.
She’s delighted to be performing at Relish tonight with her good friends, Richard Whiteman, keys and Jordan O’Connor, bass.
