Tina deVaron


The multi-talented Tina deVaron is an acclaimed singer, songwriter, and jazz pianist whose scintillating combination of original songs about motherhood and piano/vocal jazz chops have made her a favorite with audiences around the country.

Her musical Perfect Mothers was chosen as broadway.com’s Top Ten NYMF Shows to see in the 2013 New York Musicals Festival’s Reading Series and was a Next Link NYMF finalist in 2014. The reading featured Tony® winner Adriane Lenox and Tony® nominees Nancy Opel and Jenn Colella, along with other Broadway veterans Kenita Miller (the Color Purple) and Amy Bodnar (Ragtime). In February of 2015, she sold out The Metropolitan Room with a concert of her originals, called Nothing But The Love, the Songs of Tina deVaron, with Jenn Colella, Adriane Lenox, Liz Larsen, Kenita Miller and Sal Viviano.

Tina has also garnered success as a Billboard charting songwriter: her song Adore You, recorded by the Grammy-nominated group Anointed, reached #1 on the Gospel charts, and her dance track If I Close My Eyes rose to #2 on the dance radio charts. Her heart-warming original songs about motherhood have touched audiences coast-to-coast, received radio play, won her an invitation to the White House, and been used on MTV. 

Tina’s first solo CD, If Mama Ain’t Happy, released on her own label and featuring Tina performing her warm and sassy songs about motherhood, has earned her a fan base of mothers from California to Maine; she followed up with two more releases, Who Loves the Children? and Water Over Stones.

Tina just concluded her fourth successful season of Tunes with Tina, her jazz brunch for families at the Langham Place Hotel. And at NYC's Carlyle Hotel, home to the world's jazz legends, her weekly family sing-along event, “Tea with Madeline,” has sold out every December for ten years.

CBS TV’s Family Matters dubbed her The First Mother of Songwriting, and NBC called her music “The perfect mother’s day gift — just for Mom.” Mom blogs have raved about her mom "anthems," and called Tina "phenomenal." NY Times columnist Lisa Belkin calls Tina's Music "The soundtrack of my life!" Critic Joel Benjamin in Theater Pizzazz called deVaron a “modern troubadour of domesticity.”

Tina was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the daughter of world-renowned choral conductor, Lorna Cooke deVaron. She began her career as an undergraduate at Princeton University, and after moving to New York upon graduation, secured a long-running engagement as pianist at the Waldorf Hotel performing on Cole Porter’s piano.
