ALBANIE FALLETTA & her FELLAS

Listening religiously to recordings of Reinhardt, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Fats Waller, and other such great figures of jazz, ALBANIE FALLETTA developed her feel for swing. Soon she was performing alongside mentors Slim Richey, Django Porter, Ray and Linda Sriro, the Jazz Pharaohs, and other players of the Austin scene where she lived and performed in the years after high school. Between 2008 and 2013, Falletta led her own swing/early jazz band Albanie and Her Fellas, and was a member of several groups including the Thrift Set Orchestra, Guy Forsyth and the Hot Nut Riveters, Ivy Divey (a swing trio featuring three part harmony singing with Emily Gimble and Katie Shore), and others.

In the summer of 2013 Albanie relocated to New Orleans, Louisiana, where she is currently living and performing solo.
