Loretta StitesVocal's
Loretta started singing at the very young age of four. Her father was a professional musician and they would perform together, occasionally on TV and radio. During high school, she toured Europe with the Southern California Youth Chorale. During her second year of college, she auditioned for a show band and went on the road opening for artists Johnny Mathis, Barbara Eden and more. From there, Loretta was in and out of several popular pop and funk bands performing at all the hotspots in LA and Vegas and toured all over the country, while also recording several commercials and private recording projects. You could have also seen her at Disneyland performing at the Tomorrowland Stage. Loretta is still performing around the Portland area with several of our well-known Jazz musicians.
