Highline is an award-winning vocal jazz quintet comprised of five friendly friends who really like singing. We were founded in December 2017 and have been creating music videos for original, tight 5-part arrangements ever since. Based in New York City, we perform and teach all over the United States. Just recently, Highline was named national champions of the 2022 Harmony Sweepstakes.
We are committed to continuing the vocal jazz tradition established by groups like The Manhattan Transfer, New York Voices, The Real Group, and Take 6, as well as honoring the many influential instrumentalists that have pioneered jazz language. We believe in modernizing and reshaping the art form these musicians championed and making it fun and accessible for all audiences.
At the center of our philosophy is education of the next generation of singers through workshops and masterclasses in jazz singing and arranging. Most of all, we think singing and vocal music should be fun! We want our audiences to experience joy from our music, and we especially hope you do.
See us live
When we're not working on new music, we're performing all over the East Coast at festivals, concert series, and jazz clubs. We'll also often lead masterclasses and educational sessions on vocal jazz.

Support us on Patreon
Patreon is a unique fundraising platform that allows our audience to support us on a per video basis - That means you're a direct patron for each video we produce! In order to make videos and music on a professional level, we need to be able to purchase equipment, spaces, and services from our collaborators. In addition to that, reaching our goals of financing an album and putting on vocal jazz workshops for other singers also comes with a cost. We're so lucky to have the support of so many people, both close to us and fans we've just met. Please consider becoming a patron at Patreon.com/highlinevocaljazz!
We've made a quick video that explains everything about Patreon if you have any questions.
