Described by Trevor Nelson as “a mainstay of the UK soul scene”, Tony Momrelle has long been in demand as the go-to singer for a plethora of A-List artists, lending his vocal excellence to the bands of Sade, Chaka Khan, Earth, Wind & Fire, Janet Jackson, Gloria Estefan, Whitney Houston and Gary Barlow, not to mention being a lead soloist in the legendary band Incognito and the ever popular Reel People.
Described by Brian Morton for Jazz Journal as ‘A significant new voice in British Jazz’ – composer and pianist Paul Edis was selected for the prestigious talent development scheme ‘Take Five’ by Serious in 2017. His music has been played on the radio in the UK, Europe and in the US.
One of the busiest touring & session guitar players in the U.K, Jamie McCredie has played on countless film and T.V. dates all around the world, while playing/recording with a host of household name artists such as; Will Young, Robbie Williams, Joss Stone, Beverly Knight, Tokio Myers, Kid Creole, Roisin Murphy, Don Was, Johnny Hates Jazz, Simple Minds, Jools Holland, Melody Gardot, the X-Factor final, and Britain’s Got Talent – to name only a small selection.
Known the world over as The Queen Of Lover’s Rock, Carroll Thompson first burst into the spotlight 40 years ago with her ground-breaking million-selling debut album, Hopelessly In Love. Having worked with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Michael Jackson, Thompson is one of the most unmistakable voices in music. She will be showcasing songs from her forthcoming Where Did Our Lovers Go, a celebration of her lifelong love of jazz.
Alex Webb is a songwriter, arranger and pianist. His songs have been recorded by jazz singers China Moses, Mina Agossi, Sandra Nkake, Liane Carroll, Allan Harris, Alexia Gardner and Alexander Stewart, among others. His show ‘Cafe Society Swing’ has enjoyed several theatre runs in London and one in New York, where he received the New York Times ‘Critic’s Pick’.
Award winning Ciyo has worked with an astonishing range of international artists including Suggs, Paul Weller, Annie Lennox, Ronnie Laws, Billie Paul, YolanDa Brown, Jazz Warriors, Sugar Minott, Dennis Bovell, Pee Wee Ellis, Sly and Robbie, Steel Pulse, Aswad, Carroll Thompson and Carleen Anderson. He has pioneered fusions of jazz and reggae, released six albums under his own name.
Perhaps best known for his unforgettable performance of Stand By Me at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Paul Lee’s deliciously soothing gospel tones are the perfect tonic for these difficult times.
Having recently received a raft of rapturous reviews for her Weathering The Storm album, Jo Harrop is one of the brightest new stars in the jazz universe. Described by BBC 6 Music’s Iggy Pop as “a very fine jazz singer,” she has a velvety voice that can melt the stoniest of hearts.
Having cut her teeth working with everyone from Melbourne Opera to Björk, Australian-born singer and jazz harpist Tara Minton is the missing link between Dorothy Ashby and Joni Mitchell. She has just released Please Do Not Ignore The Mermaid, an astonishingly adventurous impressionist dreamscape that drifts seamlessly between jazz and contemporary classical.
