The dynamic songbird, Myrna Clayton, hails from Atlanta and has captivated audiences across the country and abroad. Her forthright musical style is rooted in jazz with a powerhouse of diva influences that include her music teacher -- the local legendary Ronnie Wells -- as well as Nancy Wilson, Shirley Horne, Nina Simone and Etta James.
Clayton's sultry style is a testimony to "many are called and few are chosen." When you witness the exuberant Clayton sing jazz classics with a heap of natural originality, you will holler, "Encore!" and "One Mo Time!"
