“In this funky French jazz show, Colleary stormed the Bastille... Simply put, c'etait magnifique."

Barbara and Scott Siegel,

Unpretentious, irreverent, and often funny, Mychelle has a quirky honesty that is effervescently entertaining, playfully challenging the audiences to listen deeply, blurring musical genres and crafting her own jazz style with arrangements that are invitingly familiar and unexpectedly daring. 

A California native, honorary New Yorker and now Londoner, Mychelle has performed professionally in theatre, rock bands, symphonies, top-40 bands, folk-rock duos, and jazz ensembles of various sizes. Currently she finds her home between the storytelling side of cabaret and the harmonic improvisational side of jazz.
