As an emerging artist on the scene, it’s going to be a real treat for me to play with the exceptional guitarist John Etheridge at Pizza Express Dean Street on Sunday 7th July at 8pm. Originally from Kent, I began my career as a stage actress and moved into Jazz after a life long passion with the music, so my theatrical background adds an extra dimension to my performances.
Supporting me on this special evening, will be a very fine headline act in his own right, the versatile and brilliant Roland Perrin ‘guaranteed to get any room dancing’ (Allaboutjazz), the hypnotic grooves of phenomenal bass player Curtis Ruiz, and the sensational beats of drummer Paul Robinson, who played with Nina Simone for many years. The wonderful John Etheridge will be sitting in on a variety of Jazz and Blues numbers. For anyone who’d like a taster, go HERE, my interview with John on BBC Radio London for Simon Lederman.
The night’s music will be comprised of some brilliantly arranged takes on classic Jazz, Blues, more contemporary material and a few originals. With this incredible band, it’s not a night to be missed!
