Maxine Sullivan (May 13, 1911 – April 7, 1987)[1], born Marietta Williams, was an American blues and jazz singer.

She was born in Homestead, Pennsylvania, and married jazz musician John Kirby in 1938 (divorced 1941), and stride pianist Cliff Jackson in 1956. Sullivan often performed vocals for John Kirby's sextet, and in 1937 recorded what would become her signature tune, a swing version of the Scottish ballad 'Loch Lomond'.

Sullivan died in 1987 in New York.[1][2] She was inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1998.
