Episode #10: Liv Gazzolo – Jazz Vocalist


How do you find the courage to trust your heart?

Today’s podcast is why I appreciate talking to young(er) people.

Bucking convention, Livia Gazzolo decided to forgo college and pursue her dreams. Imagining what life could look like, Liv said, “it just felt right.” She didn’t think about what anyone would or wouldn’t say. She just told herself to “do it.” There was no question in her mind. 

Now a musician and jazz vocalist with a residency at the Atwood Cafe in downtown Chicago, she also produces a monthly cabaret variety show at The Mouse House called “When the Cat’s Away.” 

Talking to Liv made me realize that so many of the things that keep me from answering my call to courage are the very things that Liv is calling on her courage to ignore.

Here’s a short clip of one of Liv’s songs called “Dream.”


Until next time,

Be Bold. Be Brave. Be Daring and take a bite of courage.

And remember: Spirit is invincible–at every age, so here’s to answering your call to courage and listening to the music of your heart.

See you next week.

      Right? Hi, Al. I’m hoping her youthful exuberance rubbed off on me! I think it did. 🙂 I added a clip of her vocals so take a listen if you haven’t already. Amazing. xoxo

    Livia is taking a gutsy path and it sounds like she is making a good go of it.
    I was impressed by her knowledge of older performers like Sarah Vaughn and the fact that she favored some of Alfred Hitchcock’s films. I think it unusual that one so young admires these classic artists.
    If the stars align I can hope to hear her “song stylings” one day.

      I couldn’t agree more. Hi Garry. Thanks for listening. I really loved talking to Liv. She felt like an old soul. I like to think about all the choices I have made well, instead of the other way around, but for someone so young to have such a sense of who she is and what she loves, was truly inspiring! I felt so happy after talking to her. (I had hoped to get a clip of her singing before posting, but maybe if she gets it to me I can still put it up on my site. I’ll keep you posted.) Thanks, again! xoxo
