Ringwald grew up in a home filled with music and got an early appreciation of jazz from her dad, pianist Bob Ringwald. "Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing. I like to say it is my equivalent of comfort food. It's always where I go back to when I want to feel grounded," Ringwald says.
