Abbe Buck, a native Chicagoan, began to listen to the big bands of Woody Herman and Gene Krupa in Junior High. She began voice training at age 10 and singing professionally (and playing slide trombone) while in 9th grade. Buck had subsequently worked with several big bands including the Marie Landis Big Band in Philadelphia. Buck revisited her love of singers and songs in her early 30's, during a chance meeting with the late, great Rosemary Clooney. She claims that she learned how to sing all over again by listening to the phrasing and ''storytelling'' on the albums of Miss Clooney and other singers of her era; It was at the urging of Miss Clooney that Abbe Buck record ''Big Band Swing and Saloon Style'', which remains a seller on Amazon.com: Link: Http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00003G1GB/ref=aw_d_detail?pd=1
( AMAZON Editorial Reviews...Abbe Buck's ''Songs from a Bygone Era'' celebrate the true ''swing'' idiom ...traditional jazz...pop...)

Buck takes where she learned how to sing very seriously. She has been on the board of The Society of Singers'', a non-profit organization headquarted in Los Angeles. ''SOS'' dedicated to assisting vocalists who are in their twilight years or are infirm, who have never received royalities for recording during the big band or rock and roll eras. Proceeds from ''Big Band Swing and Saloon Style'' go directly to SOS. ''One wish I have is to keep this music alive --after all, it is our history. It must pass on and be enjoyed by new generations."

Today, Abbe Buck is interested in helping those heal who will benefit through the power of music through Music Therapy. She is currently studying to be a Music Therapist at University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. She is a member of the American Music Therapy Association."Music, bridging all eras, plays a vital significant role in all of our lives. Music will aid us when we or a loved one are ill, or experience a life altering trauma. Music Heals."

Abbe Buck lives in Fredericksburg,VA with husband Skitch, son Eugene and dog Atlas.
