Elaine Dame sings - and people stop and listen. Since 1996, the woman Time Out Chicago calls “a jazz dynamo" and "a gem in the city's vocal jazz scene" has been turning heads and capturing attention at venerable jazz venues from coast to coast, bringing her unique, superlative interpretations to vintage vocal classics and modern standards alike. Neil Tesser, Grammy award-winning jazz critic and author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz said, "Dame has risen to the top ranks of Chicago jazz singers. She possesses all the musicality you could want in a true jazz vocalist: centered intonation, an enviable command of rhythm and a translucent but powerful instrument.” 

Comes Love Dames' 2005 debut recording was released to wide critical acclaim and international radio play. From Jazz Improv Magazine: “Dame combines a freshness of approach with an unaffected fondness for the music she sings. The result is a clear-eyed approach for her material that remains accessible to a broad cross section of listeners, potentially enlarging the audience for jazz.” 

You’re My Thrill Dames’ highly anticipated sophomore recording was released in 2014 to rave reviews: “Dames voice captivates us right from the very beginning, as Dame sings with a passion and a dynamic presence that comes through beautifully. After listening to You’re My Thrill, it is no wonder that Chicago holds Elaine Dame in such high regard, as her latest record is full of charm and appeal that every jazz fan will warm to.” – Listen Here Elaine worked for years in Chicago’s theater scene before turning her whole focus to jazz. It’s no wonder the Chicago Reader wrote “Ms. Dame has a winning stage presence and chameleon-like vocal flexibility.” Elaine is also an experienced clinician and has presented vocal jazz workshops all across the country.
