Whether De Lucca is swinging deftly through a jazz standard or shaking her curly blond mane as she rocks a Janis Joplin tune, it’s clear that this Jersey native lives and breathes music. As a teen, De Lucca found solace in her record collection, steeped in ‘70s superstars like Elton John, Queen and Rod Stewart, but it wasn’t until she attended a boyfriend’s band practice in high school that she realized, “right then and there, that’s what I wanted to do!” She taught herself to play bass, started singing, joined her first band, and never looked back. Later, she picked up keyboards and applied herself to learning music theory and vocal technique, studying at the famed Katie Agresta Studios in Manhattan. De Lucca also studied pop and rock vocals with Diane Wesley and Cari Cole and classical voice with Mario Lisanti.  Since then, De Lucca has recorded and performed jazz standards with small combos and big bands — making even the oldest chestnuts her own with her powerful, emotion-driven delivery. She’s also in demand for jingles, voice-over work and children’s albums.

“Music and life is a never-ending learning process. I teach and learn at the same “Music and life is a never-ending learning process. I teach and learn at the same time. When I perform, I give to the audience and receive just as much. And each life and performing experience gives me more to draw from emotionally, and deepens what I can convey through music.
