Richard Cortez

A leader in the new crop of vocal talents emerging from the New York City jazz scene, Richard Cortez’s golden voice handles the Great American Songbook with a deep emotional intelligence, an unbridled passion for song, and a rare and moving activist’s relationship to both his material and his audience.

Splitting his time between a number of weekly residencies at iconic LGBT venues across the city- among them Club Cumming, Metropolitan Bar, and Rebar, Cortez has focused and refined his artistry while growing his wide fan-base.

“The talent and musicianship of Richard and his posse are astounding!! I am in awe.” – Alan Cumming
