Hammer was named Pitch magazine Critic’s Choice Best Jazz Singer saying she “doesn’t just own a song–she owns the room where she sings the song.” Hammer is a native of Excelsior Springs but is currently one of Kansas City’s most popular jazz singers. With an theater vocal background, she has found her home in the world of jazz and blues, drawing inspiration from the likes of Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan.
