About me

Tempe Otto is a celebrated Atlanta Diva having performed in most of the high end ‘Jazz Rooms’ in this musically vibrant city. Tempe’s musicianship and style crosses comfortably from European flavors to Brazilian Bossa Nova to straight ahead American Jazz Standards. Her pleasing vocals compliment her masterful interpretation of lyric for which her classic song list deserves.

Close your eyes and step back to a time when romance still had the allure of mystery, jazz was king and cars were sporting two tone paint, miles of shiny chrome and fins … Much more than just a retro jazz singer, Tempe Otto painstakingly recreates the music, eloquence, dress and mood of the 50s and early 60s taking her audience through a time capsule journey. Her smooth and playfully steamy delivery evokes memories of the vocal styles of legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn and Julie London. Performing jazz standards, bossa nova and romantic ballads in multiple languages, Tempe takes her audiences on a fun and romantic excursion to Paris, Milan, Brazil, and the music scene in New York, creating an unforgettable evening of entertainment and dancing for you and that special someone.
