About Us

Welcome to “Harmony and Hijinks”, the show in which the women of the New York City-based vocal trio Duchess explore and celebrate harmony, both in—and outside of—the world of music.When we started singing together we discovered that humor, collaboration, and (yes) imperfection were essential ingredients for our signature style of harmony. So, we are setting out to explore how creative people from all walks of life use those same ingredients to find joy and success in their chosen field. Along the way there’s sure to be laughter, story telling and probably, hijinks --- That’s just who we are.

D is for Duchess, with our pal/mixologist, Grant Gardner

It's a very special happy hour! We're continuing our alphabetic sojourn through the world of cocktails with a bespoke libation: the Duchess, created especially for us by the Jazz Standard's master mixologist (and erstwhile jazz guitarist) Grant Gardner (no relation to Hilary, as far as we can tell). Tune in for the story behind our eponymous tipple, which is (we say immodestly) as effervescent, elegant, and fun at parties as we are.

“Feel the burn!” Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer rocks our wine world

We are joined by Master Sommelier, drummer, Toto super-fan, and Hilary's erstwhile coworker, Fred Dexheimer for a funny, far-reaching chat about all things Bacchic. Being happy tipplers ourselves, we loved Fred's riffing on the many parallels between enjoying wine and making music. Fred's no stranger to hijinks, and it's safe to say a good time was had by all when we taped this episode. [Full disclosure: we are drinking rosé THE ENTIRE TIME.]

“Feel the burn!” Master Sommelier Fred Dexheimer rocks our wine world

“I’ll do my best to free them, but first I want to see them,” with guest Kate McGarry

We are joined by Grammy-nominated songwriter, singer, and educator Kate McGarry for a far-reaching conversation about carrying the weight of our ancestors, being present and generous onstage, creating community, and much more (including sitting in the Kennedy family pew at church during her Massachusetts childhood). Kate is a true singers' singer and a beautiful spirit; her definition of harmony as "energetic alignment" is as elegant as it is concise.

“Malleability, focus, and…fun!” with guest Laila Biali

Juno-nominated singer, pianist, songwriter, and radio host Laila Biali chats with us backstage at Birdland before her recent NYC show promoting her newself-titled album. Tune in to hear how a classically trained kid from Vancouver wound up gigging with Sting (and surreptitiously snapping photos during dinner at his Tuscan villa).

“I’d be nowhere without my friends,” with guest Catherine Russell

Get ready for a master class on singing and life with Grammy-winning vocalist (and all-around beautiful and wise human being) Catherine Russell. Cat has shared the stage with David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, and Steely Dan (to name but a few) and, with half a dozen critically acclaimed recordings under her belt, is one of the most dynamic jazz and blues singers of our time. Cat shares insights about how she chooses the songs she sings, the importance of being a musical archaeologist, and the live-saving properties of music.

"Always being the cute little kid is not good for you," with guest Nat Wolff

We're going to Hollywood! We chat with singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, erstwhile standup comic, and (oh, yeah!) MOVIE STAR Nat Wolff about his childhood music lessons with Duchess's very own Amy Cervini, what it was like growing up in show business, the importance of being nice, and the time he got pranked by Robert De Niro.

He leaves us breathless...with guest John Dokes

We sit down for a long-anticipated chat with one of our favorite people and vocalists, Mr. John Dokes.
