Carmela Rappazzo grew up in upstate New York with a love for and learning the Great American Songbooks at an early age. In New York City she attended ‘Theatrium’ and became involved in off-off Broadway Theater and appeared in a few independent films, later training with Eric Morris. Carmela moved to Los Angeles in ‘92 , working with such notable film directors as Rob Reiner, Wolfgang Petersen, Jonathan Lynn and Ken Kwapis. She performed in the L. A. Jazz scene with the Jon Mayer trio and recorded “Black and White”, a straight ahead standards record with them.
