Penzance-based singer/songwriter Johanna Graham leads a fabulous quartet performing a mixture of standards, pop classics and fantastic original compositions, her varied repertoire provides an innovative and fresh interpretation of vocal-led modern jazz.
Citing musical influences from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day and Julie London, her debut album "Don't Let Me Be Lonely" released on 33Jazz Records, features her warm and mellow vocals and offers an eclectic sound that incorporates both her individual style and vocal ability, with All About Jazz describing the album as "...a musically satisfying journey".
Her award-winning quartet has already performed at the likes of the Chelsea's iconic 606 Club, Pizza Express Soho, St Ives Jazz Club, Bude Jazz Festival and the Teignmouth Jazz Festival.
The quartet also features three highly accomplished musicians from the West Country, with Martin Bowie (who also is a co-writer of much of her material) providing classy guitar riffs and top level phrasing, insightful double bass playing from the highly experienced Tim Greenhalgh, and exhilarating drumming from Damian Rodd.
