Italian-American Jazz singer and composer Roberta Setzu was born in Cagliari, Sardinia, an island in the middle of Mediterranean Sea. Since a young age Roberta was exposed to the wonders of the rich Mediterranean culture, musical heritage, traditions, rhythms and sounds, which deeply rooted and influenced her singing and approach to music and composition. Since age 19 she was performing and touring with world music artists, world renown musicians and theater companies, writing her first compositions for theater productions.
Discovering her love for jazz and its powerful freedom of expression she continued her studies by participating to Jazz Seminars and studying under great artists like Maria Pia Devito, Paolo Fresu, Garrison Fewell and more. In 2008 she graduated with a BA in Jazz from Cagliari University. Since then, she has performed and collaborated from New York to LA with musicians and composers of incredible caliber such as Piero Angeli, Dario Forzato, Kevin Bales and more. She currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, where she just finished recording her first solo Album that will be released in the fall 2019, coproduced by pianist Kevin Bales.
Roberta’s warm and evocative voice accompanies the listener to a journey. A dynamic performer with a natural ability to connect with the heart of the audience, she draws enthusiastic fan support wherever she performs.
