I am a lyricist and jazz singer. I was born in New York City. My father was the jazz writer Leonard Feather and my godmother was Billie Holiday. I started my career as an actress, then made the transition into singing; was with a vocal group called Full Swing for eight years, during which time I discovered that I loved writing lyrics more than any other activity in life; worked as a lyricist for TV and film ("The Jungle Book 2," "The Princess Diaries 2," various animated projects); began recording and releasing solo jazz albums with my lyrics in the late 1990s. Since that time I have put out eight albums, the ninth to be released 8.13.13. My last two albums received Grammy nominations.
