"Sue Giles is the real deal. Hardly anyone at Baker's Keyboard knew who singer was when she made her Detroit debut with pianist Harry Whitaker - but they sure knew her by the time she finished. She's a singer to watch: at turns girlishly effervescent and womanly soulful, an artist with a full palette of vocal colors, but also an entertainer who reaches to grab the audience by the lapels and pull." Michael Ricci, All About Jazz


"...And then, as if to prove her point, Ms. Giles launches into Ella's now famous scat lines, each dulcet note piercing the static air like a honey-dipped knife." Sarah Firshein, Princeton Packet Magazine


"Her live rendition of These Foolish Things - spare, natural, vulnerable." Linda Lobdell, Jersey Jazz


Sue Giles has performed with Sherrie Maricle and the Diva Jazz Orchestra, and with emerging pianists Art Hirahara, Michael Eckroth, Helen Sung; bassists Morrie Louden, Noriko Ueda and Jason Fraticelli. She has performed at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, The Blue Note; Iridium, Trumpet's, Shanghai Jazz, Salt Creek Grill, The Deer Head Inn, Chico's House of Jazz; and at the Cape May and COTA Jazz Festivals. Her international performances include a televised concert tribute to Ella Fitzgerald in Montenegro for KIC-Podgorica, and performances at Mister Kelly's in Osaka; as well as concerts in Hiroshima and Tokyo.

Ms. Giles continues to be an advocate for youth in arts education. She currently serves as a Teaching Fellow for the New York Pops Orchestra and Ronald McDonald House New York. She was the School Director for the Trenton Community Music School in Trenton, NJ from 2007-2010. She developed “Your Ears On Jazz”, a youth workshop geared to fostering enhanced audiation and listening skills in young adults using jazz musical concepts and vocal improvisation.

Her “unplugged” studio DVD release, Black & White, features live performances of jazz and soul standards.

I had the honor for Sue to sing at my daughters wedding . This special lady captured my heart from the first time I met her, .She has the most amazing voice, the guests could not stop talking about her. I luckily hired Sue a year ago and have found a new and dear friend at the end of all this.The song she created for my daughter and son in law was unbelievably creative and absolutley beautiful. The guests have been calling off the hook to comment on her outstanding talent. I would give Sue stars to the heavens. I recommend her for anyones upcoming events 100% Can not say enough about her.
