PizzaExpress Live in partnership with the Hampstead Jazz Club proudly presents one of the most exciting and significant soul musicians on the modern British stage. Performing tracks from his recently released ‘Lockdown Acoustic Sessions’ EP proving that music can and should be made in every circumstance. Recorded remotely during the pandemic, from locations across Europe, this new EP showcases the raw vocal talent of a man who has been described as ‘The 21st Century Stevie Wonder’ (The Guardian). Six tracks: three brand new songs, one stunning Donny Hathaway cover, and two acoustic revisits of Momrelle classics make up the new EP a live show not to be missed!
In a music career spanning 20+ years, he has performed with some of the greatest artists in the world: Incognito, Gloria Estefan, Céline Dion, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Chaka, Sade, Gary Barlow, Andrea Bocelli, Gwen Stefani, Robert Palmer and many more. In Autumn 2016 he supported the legendary Earth, Wind & Fire on their sold-out UK tour. His acclaimed debut album ‘Keep Pushing’ was released in 2015 – an infectious mingling of eighties-inspired synths, jazzy keys, classic piano and soaring soul vocals. Strong mainstream and regional radio support for the album culminated in four BBC Radio 2-playlisted singles and ongoing airplay across Europe. Momrelle’s ‘Keep Pushing Tour’ has flown world-wide, playing to sold-out audiences at venues and festivals in the UK, Australia, Italy, Germany, Russia and France. Notable media appearances in 2017/8 included an intimate duet with Jools Holland live on the much-loved BBC One show ‘Later with Jools Holland’, as well as distinguished collaborations with the Guy Barker Orchestra and Big Band for BBC Radio 2 . His sophomore album ‘Best Is Yet To Come’ released to critical acclaim in 2019.
