A "big voice in a tiny body," Samantha Aurelio has been actively singing and performing for the last 8 years. Within the last 2 years, she has been performing with her band and bringing you songs of love, heart-ache, and happiness. With her heart on her sleeve, this young songwriter is busy at work in recording her EP to be released by May of next year.
Samantha attended The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and received her Bachelors in Music. In her time there she got the opportunity to record on a Blue Note Records album with jazz legend Joey DeFrancesco. In late 2010 it was announced this album was nominated for a Grammy and Samantha got a chance to attend, as a nominee, the 2011 53rd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, CA.
Now happily on her way to New York City, NY - this rising artist is ready to write and sing her way into your hearts.
Not to be unmentioned or diminished (unexpected appearances for this observer), other talented musicians, singer/songwriters performed this evening. With styles of [her] own, the beautiful words and sounds of Samantha Aurelio shined bright.

Aurelio’s big voice and soulful piano melodies evoke the likes of British singer Adele; both have a kind of “heartbroken soul” sound. This young star has seen success at an early age, and it appears she will see much more in the near future.
