Tickets: £15.00 Seat
Lauren Bush and Marco Marconi have been working together on a new collaboration of voice and piano. Marconi’s dynamic accompaniment style paired with Lauren’s storytelling and unique phrasing result in a remarkable musical friendship. Brought into the intimate Hampstead Jazz Club environment, they will bring the audience on a musical journey through some of their favourite songs arranged the most delightful and compelling ways.
Canadian expat Lauren Bush relocated to London to pursue music on a new level almost 7 years ago. Travelling extensively around North America, Lauren has had some amazing opportunities to perform. Prior to that she had travelled around North America notching up some impressive performance credits, including opening shows for Maynard Ferguson, performing at the Victoria International Jazz Festival (BC) and singing with Bobby McFerrin at the Idaho Jazz Festival.
Following her move to the UK, in 2016 she released her debut album, All My Treasures, with the help of award winning vocalist and producer Ian Shaw and continues to go from strength to strength as a reputable vocalist.
In 2016 Lauren reached the Top 5 Finalists in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition. In 2018 curated and performed a collection of Canadian songs for the London Jazz Festival which was heralded “A fascinating and well-researched show” by the LondonJazzNews.
The night will be spent sharing a fascinating collection of well and lesser known Jazz standards. As Lauren says, “there will be songs from the past….but don’t worry, there’s always a heart-wrenching favourite thrown in for good measure!”.
“Lauren Bush uses her voice as well as any master musician. It’s a perfection unforced, finely tuned with the rest of her band.” – Bill Quinn Sunday Morning Sunshine, Metromedia Radio
…wake up world and catch this wonderful woman…you guys were great last night, you get better and better.” –Phil Ross, Charterhouse Bar, Owner
