Fiona Egan’s New CD Launch
Show Time 8:30pm / Doors Open 7:00pm
Award-winning vocalist Fiona Egan is a rising star on the London jazz scene, having performed at venues across the UK (inc. Vortex, Jazz Café, Pizza on the Park) and New York (Iridium, Lenox Lounge, Cleopatra’s Needle).
Being born into a large Irish family, singing was a way of life, making her passionate about lyrics and storytelling above all else. A classically trained singer and pianist, her musical journey took her through folk music, opera and dance music, but it was in the spontaneity and freedom of jazz that she found her true voice.
Equally comfortable with classic standards and quirky reinterpretations of modern pop and rock, Fiona effortlessly blurs genre boundaries, often with surprising results. Her articulate, understated style has led to comparisons with Blossom Dearie and Julie London.
CD Launch - "Touch Has a Memory": Unique and surprising arrangements of classic songs, from the American Songbook to the present day. Let us take you on a journey from Hoagy Carmichael to The Kinks, The Doors, and Portishead. Fiona’s precise and expressive vocals on this debut album display an impassioned love of the lyrics and the stories they tell, with a twist of dark humour.
Accompanied by a superb quartet of Bill Mudge (piano), Nick Kaçal (double bass), Milo Fell (drums/perc) and Paul Jordanous (trumpet).
