In a time of high technology and autotune, Tennessee-born, NYC-grown, and currently, Europe-based singer and songwriter Norman Vladimir is trying something new. Vladimir uses soulful, big range vocals and raw talent combined with live loops and live instruments to create an authentic sound with a definition of “pop” that is all his own. In 2010, Vladimir became the lead singer for world-renown director and choreographer Bill T. Jones' production of Fondly Do We Hope...Fervently Do We Pray. Later that year, he sang for President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sir Paul McCartney, and many others for Jones' tribute at the nationally-televised Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC. Performing in the New York City music scene, he won honors and had the opportunity to open for/share stages with the likes of Norah Jones, John Forte, Me'shell Ndegeocello, Ben Taylor, Robert DiPietro, Tarrah Reynolds, Jason Kriveloff & Mark Tewarson to name a few. He has recently moved to Europe to tour, write, perform, and to expand the reach of his work.
