Trudy at the Archduke
I’m really happy to be singing at the Archduke wine bar on the Southbank once a month. I’ll be performing a duo with Andrea Vicari on piano on Saturday March 26th and April 30th It’s from 7.30 - 9.30 so if you are in the area please pop in for a drink.
For the past year I’ve been working on a new album called The House.
This is a new project for me and a new direction. I have collaborated with pianist Andrea Vicari to write a set of new contemporary songs. The music is chamber-like but has room for improvisation. I really wanted to try something different and develop my song writing skills. The lyrics I write are about people and places in my life and I hope my honesty will resonate with my audience perhaps making them reflect on different things in their life.
The album launch for Songs of Life takes place on Wednesday 18th May at The Spice of Life, 6 Moor Street, London W1.
1st International Jazz Voice Conference
I am so excited to be chosen to perform at the 1st International jazz Voice conference in Helsinki in October.
My lecture concert will tell the story of the Art of Vocalese and my personal discovery of the art form. Vocalese is taking an instrumental solo and putting words to it. Great exponents of the Art are King Pleasure, Jon Hendricks and Kurt Elling to name a few.
Jazz Singing School is a new website I have been working on with my long time Aussie pal Anita Wardell.
We have joined together to build an educational website. It’s for anyone who is interested in singing jazz from beginners to advanced level singers.
Anita and Trudy are currently organising a Xmas Jazz Voice Boot Camp to celebrate the launch of the site, details will be available soon.
