Exclusive Interview with Songstress Yvonne Gage

Chicago Native Songstress Yvonne Gage is an experienced jazz singer who has been performing since the tender age of 14. Having worked alongside well-known artists such as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Celine Dion, and Michael McDonald. Growing up encapsulated by music – pure jazz and soulful R&B she was influenced by greats such as Sarah Vaughan, Phyllis Hyman, and Minnie Riperton. She shares that “At the very top of the list was Sarah Vaughan. That is who I grew up listening to. Sarah Vaughan was just a stand-alone in my heart.” As time went on she fell in love with the music of Phyllis Hyman and Minnie Riperton. “With Phyllis, she just melts my heart. She speaks to me. We are kindred spirits. She approaches melodies and lyrics the way that I would.” She adds, “With Minnie Riperton, it is her range, all the sensual qualities that she had. To me she is boundless.” Music has the ability to bring joy and happiness – Yvonne’s voice does just that.
