Click here for Rochelle’s Biography




Rochelle House drops a soulful infusion of skill, reverence, and unique life experience into the deep waters of jazz singing.
– John Gilbreath, Executive Director, Earshot Jazz

House is present for her music, not as an accompaniment or conveyance of formulas and conventions, but as a spirit who inheres and vivifies forms and expectations.
– Earshot Jazz Magazine, May 2006

Her singing is not flashy. It is unadorned – at least, by the more overused jazz gestures – at the same time as it is shot through with qualities that support the sad tales she tells.
– Earshot Jazz Magazine, May 2006

A broad emotional palette, capable of expressing tenderness and acceptance and disarming openheartedness, undergird this winning disc, a front-runner, for this year’s Northwest best album of the year.
– Earshot Jazz Magazine, March 2009

It is with deep empathy and a singularly unique passion that Rochelle House displays her vocal quality and original compositions. She has a way of grabbing you, the audience/listener, and pulling you into the moment of that exact moment, HER moment in whatever tune she is singing. Even with her cover of instrumental tunes, one gets the sense that she is feeling the music’s message all the way to her core.
– Dawn Clement, jazz pianist/vocalist

Knowing, emotionally engaging vocals from an under-recognized jewel of Seattle jazz. Her recent, debut album, Dreams of Love, breathed life into jazz-vocal conventions.
