”For a good time, call Duchess!"
DownBeat Magazine

Duchess is a New York-based trio featuring Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner and Melissa Stylianou and inspired by vocal groups like the Boswell Sisters and the Andrews Sisters. Duchess is well known for their sense of humour and playfulness, so be prepared to let loose and have a good time.

Sure-footed swing, sweet-toned harmony, and ever-insouciant charm are embodied in the jazz vocal trio Duchess, featuring notable New York singers Amy Cervini, Hilary Gardner, and Melissa Stylianou. Blending the classic and the contemporary, the trio has performed at major festivals and esteemed jazz clubs throughout the United States, Canada, and Israel, rightly earning a reputation for beautiful singing and big fun.

"This threesome devises original arrangements of mostly vintage songs, both familiar and offbeat. They understand that swinging music goes hand in hand with an audacious sense of humor." 
Will Friedwald, Wall Street Journal

"Three fine singers...join together in swinging harmony to whip up music that traffics in delight…this fresh-voiced triumvirate plays it straight from the heart, leaving any trace of camp or post-modern irony at the door." 
The New Yorker

"A knowing update of the Boswell Sisters sound." 
The New York Times


The New York City-based threesome debuted on Anzic Records in 2015 with the eponymous Duchess, channelling the 1930s inspiration of the virtuosic Boswell Sisters into a wonderfully entertaining package. Their 2017 follow-up, Laughing at Life (Anzic), garnered rave reviews, prompting Downbeat Magazine to declare, “For a good time, call Duchess.”

The trio released their critically acclaimed holiday EP, “Harmony for the Holidays,” in 2018. Duchess will debut in Europe in July 2019, and their much-anticipated live recording is slated for a September 2019 release on Anzic Records.
