Tina deVaron is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and jazz pianist whose scintillating combination of original songs about motherhood and piano/vocal jazz chops have made her a favorite with audiences around the country. Tina has also garnered success as a Billboard charting songwriter: her song "Adore You," recorded by the Grammy-nominated group Anointed, reached #1 on the Gospel charts, and her dance track "If I Close My Eyes" rose to #2 on the dance radio charts. Her heart-warming original songs about motherhood have touched audiences coast-to-coast, received radio play, won her an invitation to the White House, and been used on MTV. Tina’s first solo CD, If Mama Ain’t Happy, released on her own label and featuring Tina performing her warm and sassy songs about motherhood, has earned her a fan base of mothers from California to Maine, and she followed up with two more releases, Who Loves the Children? and the most recent success, Water Over Stones. In the fall of 2011, Tina opened a Jazz brunch for families at the Setai Hotel, called Tunes with Tina. Due to popular demand, “Tunes” has just opened for its second season. At NYC's Carlyle Hotel, home to the world's jazz legends, her weekly family sing-along event has sold out for seven years, and she will open her eighth-year-season there on November 3, 2012. CBS TV’s Family Matters dubbed her The First Mother of Songwriting, and NBC called her music “The perfect mother’s day gift — just for Mom.” Mom blogs have raved about her mom "anthems," and called Tina "phenomenal." New York Times columnist Lisa Belkin calls Tina's music, "The soundtrack of my life!"
