Jace Fogleman is a South Louisiana native who currently resides in Spokane, Washington. Jace’s natural talent and love of music was apparent by the age of four. He studied at the Acadiana Symphony Conservatory for eight years then continued his studies at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.
Jace recalls early highlights: singing at Santa Susanna in Rome while traveling in Europe; performing at Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco’s Inauguration; entertaining his first large audience on a cruise ship; singing in an audition room used by Judy Garland at Radio City Music Hall; saddling up to the Sardi’s piano to belt out a tune; just to name a few.
Upon relocating to the Northwest, Jace was approached by a local production company for a show featuring music from the 50s and 60s. Jace then auditioned and was cast in “Songs for a New World” (2012) attended by the show’s NYC composer, Jason Robert Brown. He was also cast in “Les Miserables” (2013) for an 8 week run at Spokane Civic Theater, he was recalled for an encore in its revival which included the Spokane Symphony (2014). He continues to remain involved in different musical productions in the area.
Classically trained and honed in Broadway musicals, yet always wanting to pursue his love for jazz, Jace began singing with Spokane’s MasterClass Big Band. He performs regularly with this well-respected 19 member band at notable Spokane venues with frequent appearances in contiguous states. He has recently started performing with the Hot Club of Spokane, a jazz band specializing in traditional and New Orleans-style “gypsy” jazz.
Jace released his debut jazz album with Mission Control Records in the fall of 2015.
