With her artist legacy series, pop/jazz vocalist and songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway paid homage to Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan on two critically-acclaimed CDs while staying true to her artistic aesthetic. Callaway continues that series with Fever: A Peggy Lee Celebration!, which highlights the songwriting talents of Lee, who wrote or co-wrote over 270 songs in her lifetime, and features two of Lee’s compositions that have never before been recorded. One, a poem written by Lee titled "Clair De Lune," Callaway composed music for; the other, a premiere of "The Other Part of Me," a song written by Lee and Paul Horner for the 1983 autobiographical Broadway musical, Peg. Featured on two tracks is special guest John Pizzarelli, another connection to Lee, whose favorite guitar player, after her husband, Dave Barbour, was John's father, Bucky Pizzarelli.

The recording came on the heels of Callaway’s show, Fever: The Peggy Lee Century, a 100th birthday celebration of the singer at the New York City supper club 54 Below for which she just received a BroadwayWorld nomination for Best Celebrity Show.

Callaway comes from an artistic background—her parents were John Callaway, a legendary TV and radio journalist, and Shirley Callaway, a pianist, performer and revered voice teacher. She writes in her liner notes: "I like to say I was raised on milk and 'Fever' because Peggy's iconic hit came out the year I was born and pulsed through our little Chicago walk-up like a welcoming heartbeat." Lee's many records were spinning on her parent's turntable, sparking Callaway's lifelong love of the pop/jazz icon.

As Callaway matured, she especially appreciated how Lee's less-is-more approach to her singing lent her songs beauty, mystery, and vulnerability. And, when she discovered what a brilliant and prolific songwriter Lee was, she became an even more defining inspiration to her.

Curious and genetically-inclined to do her research like her father, who "knew more about the people he interviewed than the people themselves," according to Callaway, she was inspired to explore beyond Lee’s world-facing persona and the hit songs such as "Fever." She was also fortunate to have access to the deeply personal stories behind the music through her friendship with Holly Foster Wells, sole granddaughter of Peggy Lee and administrator for the estate.

Their friendship led to the enviable once-in-a-lifetime creative opportunity for Callaway, bestowed upon her by Wells, resulting in the recording debut of the two new Lee works, hidden gems entrusted by Wells to Callaway, that make this legacy project unique.

Callaway and Lee share several traits: both are songwriters, superb vocalists, mesmerizing storytellers, and fearless. "They both have a way of really captivating an audience and casting a spell," says Wells, who went on the road with her grandmother starting at six years old. "Ann has an incredible instrument and she is also a sensitive human being and performer. They are both spiritual people and that comes through their music."

With 14 spellbinding tracks on Fever: A Peggy Lee Celebration!, Callaway provides a deeper look into the prodigious songwriting talent of Lee, who some regard as the first female singer-songwriter, burnishing her legacy as a trailblazer for women in the music business.

Almost with Amanda McBroom

Amanda McBroom and Ann Hampton Callaway released a single of a song they wrote and recorded called “Almost” on May 12, 2023. It's available on Amazon, iTunes.com, Spotify, and all digital outlets, from LML Records.

Amanda on working with Ann:
"Working with the most talented jazz goddess on the planet, Ann Hampton Callaway, is a gift from heaven. Not only is she the best singer I know, she is the kindest and funniest soul. Recording our song together was a dream come true."

Ann on working with Amanda:
"Several years ago, I stayed with Amanda in her beautiful house in Ojai. One morning, she handed me a lyric and said she’d love to see if it inspired some music from me. I looked at it and said, "Let’s go into the studio." I went to her piano, surrounded by friends over for breakfast, looked at the lyric again, pressed record on my iPhone, and out came the music to "Almost." We never changed a note. The reason I could compose on the spot was that Amanda’s lyric was so well written, so emotionally true, and so beautiful all I had to do was follow the path she had forged, and notes arrived naturally. She is one of my dearest friends, one of my favorite collaborators, and one of our country’s greatest storytellers. I am thrilled that we are finally releasing our very first recording of a song we both created and love."

"Ann Hampton Callaway is an iconic singer-songwriter-musician who actually does have a personal life, even though it seems impossible, given the amount of time that she spends dedicated to the production of art. She is constantly touring with a selection of different shows, to places and clubs far and near. She has reached multitudes of fans through her various social media platforms. She records and releases new material on a regular basis. And when she shows up, she really delivers. In the spring Ann played a week of sold-out Peggy Lee shows at 54 Below and in the fall she returned to Broadway's Living Room with her sister, Liz Callaway, with their all-new sister act. Industrious, indefatigable, and always the most fascinating woman in the room, Ann Hampton Callaway is a treasure to the worlds of music, live entertainment, and art. She has stood out in this writer's mind all year and staked a forever claim on my heart. She will be back at 54 Below on January 15th with FEVER: A PEGGY LEE CELEBRATION and SINGS THE 70's and, again, on March 2nd with Amanda McBroom in DIVALICIOUS. Ann Hampton Callaway is a Mistress of Creation and we are all the lucky benefactors of her artistry." - Stephen Mosher Read the full article here.

Dial A Diva

Dial A DivaDear Friends,

During the pandemic I started my Dial-a-Diva program to offer new ways to share my talents to keep the celebration going and be musically inspired. Now that touring is coming back, I will be more selective on how much I can take on but since I enjoyed it so much here are the offerings:

1. If you would like me to write you a song for you, for someone you love, for a special occasion, or for a cause, let me know and we can discuss how to make this work.

2. If you are an educator in a music department and would like me to give a masterclass in song interpretation, arranging songs and making them your own, the music business, songwriting or improvisation, I'd be very interested in doing Zoom classes with your students. I love seeing the potential in people and helping them to dig deeper and shine.

3. If you have a special occasion and would like me to give you, your friends and family a private Zoom concert with requests or a theme that is meaningful to you, I am your diva.

4. Want a specially priced offering to celebrate an occasion or the one you love? I am now offering to make up improvs to your grocery list of words and phrases or sing a favorite well known song. Both come with spoken dedications to your loved ones and will be uploaded to YouTube unlisted, so you will have the link to share with friends and family. Put your request in now for this very special offer!

For more details and pricing please contact my manager Brett Steele, Steele Management at (727) 420-1547 brett@steelemgmt.net
