Ms. Avis was trained at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts in Paris and graduated with a second prize in tragedy. She performed in various productions both classical and contemporary, including John Guare’s “House of Blue Leaves ” and “Boeing-Boeing”, a big Broadway hit this season, and appeared in films and plays on French Television.
After Yanna met and married her husband Warren Avis, she put her homeland and career as a stage actress behind, and began performing her own brand of glamorous continental style cabaret in 1992.
Yanna recorded her third album: “Speak Love to Me” with Lee Musiker, following her other two recordings: “Easy Come, Easy Go” and “This Time It’s Love”.
“Speak Love To Me,“ released March 2009, is available in selected stores and on the internet at CD Baby, ITunes, Rhapsody, Amazon etc... including her own website at www.yannaavis.com.
Yanna’s video clip featuring “Mon Manége à Moi” can be seen on YouTube.
