Carla Jamie Perez
Singer, songwriter and producer, Carla (Jamie) Perez is renowned as a highly versatile singer, voice teacher; and performance artist. An artist of eclectic tastes and total vocality, she has sung in over 18 languages and covered a variety of musical genres. She has also written, directed and produced numbers of live events as Artistic Director of Performances à la Carte.
Widely recognized as a premier interpreter of song with a highly successful operatic and classical career, she continues to distinguish herself in all-manner of voice related projects from live performance to voice-over to ambient voicing for film and art. After a 30+ year highly successful international career in opera, she is now living her “other” dream in returning to her jazz roots; actively promoting the art form of jazz and the artistry of stellar jazz musicians.
Through her artistic endeavors with her production company Performances à la Carte, and the Los Angeles based Jazz ‘N Paz seasonal series, she continues to create collaborative projects that promote artists, serve the public interest and that fuel her passion for beauty, authenticity and social justice.
