Naz Edwards is a singer/actor in the best and highest sense of both terms. A true believer that a song encompasses the very life and lives from which it is drawn, she has a remarkable gift for blending her incredibly rich and dynamic vocal instrument with the story that it tells. Naz’s captivating presence has brought audiences — from Broadway and regional theatres, to intimate cabarets and individual listeners of her recordings, into the magic of the moment, a world of powerful emotions and intricate nuance.
