Live jazz, artists, venues and education in Leicester
A natural performer, creative improviser and talented musician, Lucy-Anne is a practiced vocalist hailing from Leeds whose vocal sound draws inspiration from singers such as Betty Carter, gospel duo Mary Mary and Amy Winehouse. Having been raised in a musical household, Lucy-Anne found herself in the world of performance at a young age, often singing in church and at local events and fundraisers in her hometown of Leeds. The rich rhythms and harmonies of gospel music, with its own roots branching out from Jazz, have always been an underlying feature of Lucy-Anne’s musicality, therefore, it was a natural that she gravitated towards jazz. At the tender age of sixteen, Lucy-Anne became the vocal chair holder for NYJO’s 24-piece jazz orchestra in December 2019. Since then she has performed with the band at various venues and festivals across the country, most memorably a hometown gig which saw her return to the historic Leeds Town Hall. In September 2020 she began studying jazz voice at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, receiving tuition from both Sara Colman and Noemi Nutti. Lucy-Anne has matured incredibly since joining NYJO in 2019 and has since established herself as an emerging artist on the Birmingham jazz scene in her own right.
