Jazz live music
Make your reservation www.edwinmills.com
Grew up in jazz. My stepdad is Stanley Clarke, legendary jazz bassist, one of the trailblazers of fusion in the early 1970s. With Chick Corea he was in a band called Return to Forever, and growing up, he was always shoving Ella Fitzgerald under my nose.
I went to art school. I studied painting and performance art and video production. I spent a lot of time not studying music, loving jazz the whole time — it’s the family business.
I loved singing — it was my favorite thing to do ever since I was a little kid. It’s what I need to do on this planet, and a lot of people need to hear…That’s the situation I find myself in, in this body, in this lifetime. It’s about jazz music for me, there’s nothing that I love more.

Leah Ashton
Pop music with Soul and Blues flavor
Hi, I’m Leah. I’m a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and performer who lives in Los Angeles. I started to write an informative biography about myself, but it got a little #boring. Then I began to wonder, “does anyone actually read these things?” In case you are one of the lucky people who does, here are some (short and sweet-ish) things you might like to know:
When I grow up, I’d like to be some combination of Carole King, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt, Eva Cassidy, Aretha Franklin, Susan Tedeschi, and Sara Bareilles. I love the music these ladies make and I’d like to think that my music reflects their influence in some way.
I grew up in the Akron area of Ohio. (Go Cavs!)
I studied music at Anderson University in Indiana, and I was signed to the university’s record label, Orangehaus Records. With that label I released a self-titled 5 song EP, and also two singles: my own version of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”, and an original song “After the Rain”. You can listen to and purchase that music here

Erin Bentlage + Jacob Mann
Jazz
Hailing from the green mountains of Vermont, Erin Bentlage writes, sings, and plays music with an unquenchable thirst for organic sound. Raised in a small town near the city of Burlington, she developed her love for emotional musical expression through ballet and classical piano lessons, and in high school found herself involved in any musical activity possible from performing as a singer and pianist to directing the school’s first a cappella group. She became the first vocalist to win the Vermont All State Jazz Scholarship in 2008 and 2009, which was also her first experience in jazz and improvisation. Though university studies tried to pull her towards the sciences at Boston University, she realized by the beginning of her sophomore year that she wanted to devote her life to music and transferred to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
During her time in Boston, Erin had the opportunity to learn from and perform with an outstanding variety of inspired musicians. She rediscovered her love for a cappella and vocal music with Joey Blake and the Singing Tribe (created by Bobby McFerrin) which launched her into an exploration in spontaneous composition and improvisation. She had recorded and performed with circle singing masters and creators WeBe3 (Joey Blake, Rhiannon Watson, David Worm). She simultaneously began to study jazz voice more seriously. She also studied songwriting and jazz composition to supplement her Contemporary Writing and Production major, which granted her a deeper exploration in arranging and composing in all genres as well as experience as a music producer and engineer.
Erin was awarded a Downbeat Student Award as a Vocal Jazz Soloist in 2014. She performed with the Berklee Vocal Jazz Ensemble at the 2014 JEN Conference, and has recorded and performed with rising jazz protégés Christian Li, Daniel Rotem, Albino Mbie, Ryo Konishi, and Drew Krasner. Erin has also appeared in the Burlington Jazz Festival, the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival, and First Night Burlington.
Erin currently lives in Los Angeles, CA, where she writes, performs, and teaches. With influences ranging from Laura Marling to Becca Stevens to Sarah Vaughan, Erin’s writing and performing creates a sound that will continue to grow from a place of joyful, honest expression.

Randi Cee
Jazz Swing Live Music
The songs Randi Cee sings can be called Jazz tunes. But they are so much more. These tunes were the pop songs of the day and run the gamut from sweet to saucy. The one thing they all have in common is they swing! Whether she is singing these songs in a nightclub, supper club, or jazz festival one thing becomes apparent she embodies the tune. It’s about telling the story and swinging that melody. As an audience member you are totally caught up in her stage presence.
Randi Cee has enjoyed (and still is enjoying) a successful career as a Los Angeles based Actor, Dancer and Singer. Her craft has allowed her the opportunity to travel the world, from a commercial shoot in Tokyo, to having a recurring role in The New Adventures of Robin Hood which shot in Lithuania, to dancing live at the Academy Awards, Randi has covered the globe.
Randi Cee, by her own admission, was “Ruined by MGM musicals”, As a small child she thought to act, sing, and dance must be the best way to go through life! To that end, Randi has had the opportunity to work with Directors as varied as Steven Spielberg, The Coen Brothers, Adam Shankman, Robby Marshall, and Joss Whedon.
For the last several years, she has been focusing her efforts on bringing the gems of the Early American Songbook to life. Inspired by time spent in New Orleans. Randi is thrilled to be part of the great tradition of singers who are keeping this music alive and well. Although “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, a good night of music is not! Not only does Randi bring her voice to the stage, but a personality and style that you’d swear just walked off the Back Lot! If it’s raining out and you should find her dancing and singing in the street, just smile and tip your imaginary hat!
