Known for their close-knit voicings, inspired arrangements and unparalleled vocal blend, New York Voices interests are deeply rooted in jazz, Brazilian, R&B, classical and pop. Formed by Darmon Meader, Peter Eldridge, Kim Nazarian, and Lauren Kinhan, New York Voices had their first performances in 1988. In 1989, they signed their first record deal with GRP Records and released a self-titled debut album. The group will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year.
