Fabiana Passoni hails from Poços de Caldas, Minas Gerais, Brazil. After early success singing sertaneja, carnival, and rock, Fabiana moved to New York City and to sing bossa nova jazz fusion to American audiences. Legendary artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Leny Andrade influenced her style. She found her own voice after moving to Los Angeles in 2007 while composing songs for her debut album, É Minha Vez.
Fabiana’s three-year battle with breast cancer put her on a journey not only of survival but a discovery of her own personal musical style. Fabiana released the acclaimed Naturalmente Brasil in 2011 featuring 12 original tracks. Composed in the midst of her battle with cancer, chemotherapy and pregnancy, Fabiana’s dreams of continuing her career never faltered even among many setbacks.
Chosen by the Brazilian International Press Awards’ 2012 Colégio Eleitoral as best Brazilian Female Singer living in the U.S. confirmed Fabiana’s ability to connect her fans to her music. Later that year, Fabiana performed in the hit musical Loving the Silent Tears at the sold-out Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Fabiana recorded and released three EPs under her Wilbur Music label; Dim The Lights (2013), Let Your Love Rise (2014) and Inner Bossa (2015). Bossa At Dusk (CD) was released in 2016 by a Japanese label. She has also recorded and released 10 singles and collaborations.
Fabiana continues to perform, create, and record. Her songs are a combination of jazz fusion with the older rhythms of Brazil such as bossa nova, baião, and samba. Her interpretations are passionate, sensual and exciting. Her live performances are a celebration of Brazilian soul and culture – rich in percussion and expression with a relentless zeal for life.
