Biography

Agnieszka Iwanska is an accomplished and gifted jazz vocalist, composer and lyricist. Her sultry and sensitive signing style stands out as a fresh and exciting voice in contemporary jazz. As a vocalist, Agnieszka has been hailed as the “voice of promise” by noted jazz critic Howard Reich from the Chicago Tribune. Brad Walseth of WNUA-FM praised her style and performance by noting that “Like Basia, Iwanska is a Polish singer who has taken on the Brazilian sound pioneered by Astrud Gilberto. She sings her well-written songs showing considerable ability, and charms the crowd with her fresh and honest approach. ” Agnieszka is a graduate of the Jazz Studies program at the University of Katowice, Poland’s only accredited jazz program. While in Poland, Agnieszka had the opportunity to perform with some of the country’s top jazz talents including Mieczyslaw Szczesniak, Jan Smoczynski, Sebastian Frankiewicz and Daniel Biel, who play with Michael Urbaniak. After arriving in the US, Agnieszka formed her own band; a quintet featuring some of Chicago’s talented jazz musicians.

Working with keyboardist/composer Paul Scherer, Agnieszka has completed her first full-length CD of original material. “All That I Am” debuted at number 45 on the smoothjazz.com indie chart and is now in rotation on over 90 radio stations across the US.

The CD features songs in both English and Polish, all written and arranged by Iwanska and Scherer. The Polish TV Polvision and Polsat 2 made a few programs about Agnieszka in 2008.
