In her own words…

“Though I spend most of my time singing straight-ahead jazz these days, I am also a songwriter and have been since I was a teenager. My songwriting expresses my varied musical influences: jazz and soul perhaps being the most obvious, but also classical/choral, folk, arabic and pop. Songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Laura Mvula, Laura Marling, Lianne La Havas and Carole King have been a massive inspiration, to name but a few! I have also written several songs for other artists such as ‘Hannah Williams and The Affirmations’ and ‘The Excitements’. The band will consist of top Bristol players and I am looking forward to exploring a different approach to instrumentation/line-up. Expect something other than piano/guitar/bass/drums, for a richer musical and emotional palette. This will be my first performance of original music for some time.”
