GHEZZI

Ghezzi’s life is a series of leaps and bounds through athletics and the arts – quite literally. There is a strong family history of music: her father was a professional jazz guitarist, her mother a professional singer. She began performing at age 7 and has appeared on stages all over the world. She studied business at Indiana University with a focus on marketing and advertising and fine-tuned those skills at Brand Fuel Promotions.

 Prior to her more current forays into the worlds of Music and Artist Career Development at CJG Innovative, she was a champion Junior Olympic swimmer and diver — and that was before she attended The NC School of the Arts at age 11. She has lived in Italy twice as a professional ballerina and has danced with the Pennsylvania Ballet, School of American Ballet (NYC), and the Joffrey Ballet (NYC) among countless others. She’s choreographed, directed and taught ballet for years; produced International Dance Concerts, and privately coached vocalists for over a decade. Winning scholarships & awards for her electrifying work, including a Billboard top 100 award, she brings her abilities to command and excite audiences to her powerful concerts as a vocalist. She’s worked extensively with Aids Alliance Carolina as a fundraiser, and was commissioned to write a signature song for World Aids Day, performed with her band for several years.

 Ghezzi debuted her first recording in April 1997; “Taking No Prisoners” is a mix of r&b, blues, originals and soulful rock. Her 2nd recording, “Clearing” was released in July 1999 to critical acclaim. In 2010 her song, “Don’t Tempt Me” stayed at number 1 on WUMD 89.3 FM for 4 months. Legendary radio DJ Kitty Kinnin continues to air Ghezzi’s recordings on her popular Sunday Brunch show.

 Ghezzi has worked with notable producers, including Grammy-Nominated John Custer, Jason Richmond and Wes Lachot. She’s shared the stage and/or recorded with notable musicians…guitarists Steve Kimock and Scott Sawyer, drummer Kenny Soule, bassists Bobby Patterson, Don Gladstone and Ron Brendle; to name a few.
