Vocalist

Brigitte studied Music at Kingsway College, Goldsmiths College, and Jazz at the Guildhall School of Music. She is now recognized as one of the most versatile and interesting vocalists to emerge on the London jazz scene recently.

As well as performing and recording with musical luminaries such as Kenny Wheeler, Chris Laurence, Paul Clarvis, John Parricelli and Henry Lowther she is closely involved in the work of the new generation of jazz musicians and in particular the Loop and E17 jazz collectives.

Both her album releases show a wide range of musical influences. Prelude to a Kiss, is a more straight-ahead collection of standard songs and originals. Flying Dreams contains a very personal collection of original compositions, influenced by Anglo-European and Latin Jazz.

An experienced educator, Brigitte leads jazz workshops and teaches on a one to one basis at Goldsmiths College, The Guildhall and the Welsh College of Music. She has performed and led workshops in the United States, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland, Turkey, Nepal and the UK.

2011 will see the release of two new albums: a standards album with John Turville & Bobby Wellins, and an album of mainly original music with "Babel Fish", featuring Barry Green, Chris Laurence and Paul Clarvis.
