Most recently, Rob Lester in Nightlife Exchange commented, "When a vocalist comes along with a strikingly rich and radiant voice with real, as they say, 'chops' PLUS can do the connecting with the listener and personalizing the material, that’s when you have…well, someone like Josephine Sanges."
A 2015 Metro Star Finalist and a 2017 MAC award nominee, Josephine made her foray into the world of cabaret and jazz in 2014 with her solo debut at the Metropolitan Room, and has since gone on to be a featured artist at Carnegie Hall, Town Hall, and Lincoln Center. Josephine has performed in concert with Ronan Tynan, Daniel Rodriguez, KT Sullivan, Jeff Harner, Andrea Marcovicci, Steve Ross, Carole Bufford, Celia Berk and more.
Her most recent album "To Ann, With Love," based on her cabaret show of the same name, will be released in the spring of 2017. Ann Hampton Callaway has said of her, "Josephine has a beautiful voice and has put a lot of imagination and humor into the lovely mix and delivery of song choices. Her rendition of Perfect is...perfect!"
