With 10 albums to her credit, Champian is a world-class Jazz pianist and singer with international acclaim and a is a mainstay on the vibrant New York Jazz scene. She won Downbeat Magazine’s 2015 Rising Star award for female vocalist and Hot House Jazz Magazine’s 2017 Female Jazz Vocalist of the Year award. Today her piano and voice skills are widely recognized by peers and critics as possessing distinction and sophistication. From North America to Europe, Africa to Australia, Champian’s swinging style and charismatic performances have made her a guardian of the legacy of Jazz. “Her vocal style is a unique amalgamation of the straight-ahead and the experimental, alternately declamatory and lyrical, off-beat and swinging, devoted to the song itself and determined to express her uniqueness–imagine listening simultaneously to Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone singing the same song.” -CD Hot List "
“[Champian’s] voice is a little bit of heaven here on earth. Subservient to each song (as it should be), she takes lyrics and makes them all into one-act vignettes, believable, honest, imbued with a veracity that transcends the art of vocalese into a kind of personal communication that will resonate deep in your soul. “ Mike Greenblatt for “The Aquarian”
