V. SHAYNE FREDERICK QUINTET LIVE @ SOUTH

South Jazz Parlor, 600 N Broad Street, Philadephia PA 19130

  1. Shayne Frederick is a pianist, vocalist and poet. He began his formal musical study at Dartmouth College, and then later in a local Jazz ensemble in Philadelphia led by the legendary organist, pianist, composer and vocalist Trudy Pitts. His informal musical study, however, began at birth. V. Shayne was born in North Carolina to musician parents— his mother, a pianist and vocalist, and his father, a saxophonist. Even still, music would come later than childhood for him. As a self-taught pianist and vocalist, his craft has been honed at jam sessions, on bandstands, in concert halls, and behind pianos at a multitude of venues over the last decade.
