"Sophisticated Lady: The sultry Yanna Avis is no innocent ingenue... a bona fide chanteuse." New York Observer
"Evoking '50's glamour, through teasing taunts." The New York Times
Her smoky voice and sophisticated style captivate worldwide. Avis makes her mark with her theatrical technique, tongue-in-cheek delivery and sultry sense of humour. The Titian-tressed chanteuse knows how to land a baby grand with style; her sets, peppered with French, American, Spanish, Italian and German songs sizzle in any time zone.
Her unique style of international cabaret has made her a must-see in many of New York's most prestigious rooms, including Maxim's, "Feinstein" at the Regency, Café Sabarski, The Metropolitan Room and Café Carlyle. She has also performed at Italy's famed Spoleto Music Festival.
After Yanna met her husband Warren Avis, she put her homeland and her career as a noted stage and screen actress behind her and began to perform her own brand of glamorous continental style cabaret. Yanna recorded her third album: "Speak Love to Me" with Lee Musiker, following her other two recordings: "Easy Come, Easy Go" and "This Time It's Love".
