Babi Mendes is a Brazilian singer-songwriter who performs in a jazz style, taking inspiration from such jazz greats as Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole as well as from the music of her home country.

As the granddaughter of the Brazilian composer Dinah Menezes and the journalist Carlos Menezes, Babi Mendes started studying English at the age of 9 and singing at the age of 14. She studied at local conservatories and since the beginning demonstrated a particular interest in jazz, blues, bossa nova and rythim'n'blues.

American music has always been her greatest influence, but she also admires musicians such as Tom Jobim, Chico Buarque and Milton Nascimento when it comes to Brazilian popular music. Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Betty Carter and Nina Simone are references to Babi's work and well as contemporary singers such as Norah Jones, Diana Krall, Diane Schurr, Jane Monheit and Karrin Allyson.

In her repertoire, since she started her music career in the city of Santos, in her country, Brazil, there are traditional jazz standards from songwriters such as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Benny Goodman, George and Ira Gershwin, Louis Armstrong and Cole Porter. The singer has performed in jazz duos, quartets and bands.

In 2006, took part in a project called Santos de Casa, at SESC Santos, in which she was the guest singer at Maurício Fernandes Quartet's presentation. Besides contributing with several musicians, Babi Mendes is currently working with the quartet, 'The Old News', and with the guitar player Pedro Ramos on her own songs. She also joined 4act Performing Arts and studied musical theater in São Paulo. Babi wrote the songs from 'Short Stories' between 2003 and 2010. Journalist, Portuguese and English teacher, what she loves writing the most is not news or literature: but songs.

'Short Stories' is her debut album.
