Mandy Harvey and her band

Mandy Harvey and her band

Mandy Harvey is an American jazz singer and songwriter; she is also deaf. While pursuing a vocal music education major at Colorado State University, Harvey lost her residual hearing at age 18 due to a neurological disorder. She left the program and pursued other career options but soon returned to music. Harvey quickly became a regular performer at venues in Fort Collins and Denver, including some of the world’s top jazz venues. Her first album, "Smile," was released to widespread praise in 2009. Since then, she has released additional critically acclaimed albums: "After You’ve Gone" (2010), "All of Me" (2014), "Nice To Meet You "(2019) and "Masterpiece" (2021). She was the winner of a 2015 Inspiration Award from the Invisible Disabilities Association and was a contestant during season 12 of “America’s Got Talent” (2017). Though her hearing loss is profound, Harvey’s timing, pitch and passion are perfect. Join Harvey and her full band in sensing the rhythm during this exciting musical performance.
