Amy London (born 1957) is a jazz singer from Teaneck, New Jersey, United States.

London grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. She moved to Manhattan in 1980, and moved to Teaneck with her husband, guitarist Roni Ben-Hur,[1] and daughters, Sofia and Anna, in 1998.[2]

London released her first album as leader of a quintet, "When I Look in Your Eyes" in December 2007, which was recorded at Bennett Studios in Englewood, New Jersey. The album features bassist Rufus Reid, drummer Leroy Williams, along with pianists Lee Musiker and the late John Hicks. "Bridges", London's second recording featuring performances from the 1980s and 90s, was released later in 2009.[2]

She sang in the Tony Award-winning musical City of Angels from 1989 to 1992. London helped start the vocal department at The New School in 1992 and is an adjunct professor there.[2]

She is currently signed to Motéma Music.
