About Roya Naldi: 

Roya Naldi, based in Chicago, IL, specializes in classic jazz music of the 1920s and 1930s. Classic jazz, especially that which was recorded in Chicago during that time, became her obsession when she was in her teens and has remained a focus in her life since.

Roya Naldi performs many familiar jazz standards, but highlights rarely-heard, unique songs that are sparkling diamonds in the rough. She approaches her music from a perspective of authenticity and emotionalism. Her rich vocal tone and unique style breathes new life into the music of the jazz age, singing with a nuanced, exciting, and often moody style. Roya Naldi views every song as a beautiful story she is telling to her listeners, approaching every lyric with a sense of empathy and emotion. She draws inspiration from many notable jazz singers of the 1920s and 1930s, such as Al Bowlly, Annette Hanshaw, Cliff Edwards, Frank Sylvano, and others. Inspired by these greats, the music Roya Naldi performs gives listeners a modern taste of a style of jazz that has kept its charm and allure for a century!

Roya Naldi has made regular appearances at Chicago’s stylish The Drake hotel, the legendary Green Mill Cocktail Lounge, Hungry Brain, various other venues and festivals in and beyond Chicago, and is always accompanied by the finest musicians of the genre.

'This Madness’ is an EP collection of four songs pressed onto 78rpm vinyl for Rivermont Records! This EP highlights the stunning vocals of Roya Naldi in an intimate and captivating manner, as she sings some of her favorite songs from the Jazz Age. Many of these songs have a deep sentimental value to her and it comes through beautifully in this album. ‘This Madness’ is at times playful, but has an underlying moody / dark feel, both musically and expressed through the album cover art. This album was recorded during the uncertain and difficult year of 2021. It is a tribute to the trying time
