KC is one of the UK’s most exciting female saxophonists, vocalists and composers, having developed her own unique ‘funky’ style of saxophone playing, built upon influences by great players such as Gerald Albright, Maceo Parker, Pee Wee Ellis, Andy Sheppard, Dean Fraser, Courtney Pine and Grover Washington. KC trained alongside American saxophonist Pee Wee Ellis (saxophonist with James Brown and Van Morrison) and internationally acclaimed jazz saxophonist Andy Sheppard. KC’s vocal style has been influenced by the great Billie Holiday together with a wide range of vocalists including Imelda May, Caro Emerald and Liane Carroll.
Inspired by the funkier side of jazz, KC’s style of performance is best described as ‘funky saxophonist meets 1940′s jazz singer’. KC performs an eclectic mix of music spanning many genres with a quirky, jazzy twist together with her own original material, all packaged up in a captivating performance and warm stage presence.
KC’s debut album ‘Make Believe’ was released end of 2016, receiving a glowing review from London Jazz News. Following an album launch event at The Queen’s Hotel Cheltenham, KC and her band are currently performing a series of album tour dates across the UK and overseas including Pizza Express ‘live’ Dean Street, The Pheasantry Chelsea, The Stables Wavendon, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival, Nantwich Jazz & Blues Festival, Birmingham, Sandwell & Solihull Jazz Festival, Pershore Jazz Festival, Guiting Music Festival plus jazz clubs, theatres and venues all across the UK. Tour dates in New York are also on the cards for 2019.
