In 2009 I met an accomplished jazz musician Craig Milverton . Craig has played with some of the greatest jazz musicians alive including Digby Fairweather, Paul Jones, Julian Marc Stringle, Mark Crooks, Scott Hamilton, Dominic Ashworth and a host of others. Craig and I put together a jazz set and started to gig together around each others busy schedules. I have a secret love for singing jazz standards. Some of my biggest vocal influences are jazz singers like Nina Simone, Karen Carpenter and more recently Corinne Bailey Rae.
