Jane Monheit (born November 3, 1977) is a jazz and adult contemporary vocalist for Concord Records who rose to notoriety with her debut album Never Never Land as well as collaborations with artists such as Michael Bublé and Grammy nominations for two of her recordings.
Monheit was born in Oakdale, New York on Long Island. She began singing professionally while attending Connetquot High School. At 17, she began to study at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City under the tutelage of Peter Eldridge. She earned a Bachelor's degree in music in 1999. At the age of 20, as a senior, she won the first runner-up prize at the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute Vocal Competition.
Monheit's classically trained voice has been compared to that of Ella Fitzgerald, whom she lists as one of her influences. Even though she is often cited as a jazz vocalist, her recorded tracks range from jazz to MGM/RKO 1930s–1950s musicals and Latin American rhythms such as the song "Comecar De Novo."
