“From the first phrase sung, the audience can relax and know they are in the presence of a star in complete command of her art…Sanges has an incredibly flexible instrument…a jazz singer with a rare instinct for interpreting lyrics at the same time.” (4/12/18) Bart Greenberg – Cabaret Scenes
Josephine Sanges, 2018 MAC La Mott Friedman Recording Award winner (Finding Beauty,) 2017 Margaret Whiting Award winner and 2017 Broadway World nominee, made her cabaret debut in 2014 and, since that time, has been a featured artist at the Mabel Mercer Foundation’s annual Cabaret Convention, performing at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and Rose Hall at Lincoln Center.
