Soulful jazz singer Amy Mayes has drawn inspiration from the voices of Bessie Smith, Aretha Franklin, Janis Joplin, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Martha Reeves and Gladys Knight.
She honed her voice singing in the Duke Ellington Repertoire Orchestra and alongside boogie-woogie pianist Ben Waters. Amy sang on Ben’s ‘Live in Moscow’ album then joined him on a European tour which culminated in a session for Jools Holland’s Radio 2 show.
Ben Waters is so impressed by Amy’s talent that he performed on her debut album alongside guitar virtuoso Robbie McIntosh and supported her debut tour of the UK in 2017.
Tickets: £14.50; £13:50 concs.
