Desare has traveled around the world showcasing his talents for many different audiences on his was to being named a “Rising Star Male Vocalist” by Downbeat magazine. Desare has three top ten Billboard jazz albums which has led to him being featured on the Today Show, NPR and the CBS early Show.

From Carnegie Hall to Las Vegas headlining with Don Rickles and major symphony orchestras, DeSare has brought his fresh and suave take on old school class around the globe.
