16th - Novatown Bossa
Novatown is a collective of Bossa Nova musicians in Edinburgh. Our style is heavily influenced by Brazilian and Latin American music. The phrase bossa nova means literally "new trend" or "new wave" and we bring a lyrical fusion of samba and jazz. We are a group of young musicians and students who first got together to bring our love of Bossa to the Edinburgh scene and it was at the 2019 Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival that Novatown was born. We initially started off as a collective of 10, performing in ensembles of anything between 3 to 10 pieces. Now we bring our music as a refresh of the style into the Edinburgh town.
23rd - Katie Doyla
Glaswegian singer/songwriter Katie Doyle is quickly establishing herself as one to watch. Her soaring vocals and unique lyrics demand attention and make it easy to see why fans are making comparisons to the likes of Amy Winehouse and Alicia Keys. Set to be released later this year, her highly anticipated debut EP will prove why Katie's big break is on the horizon.
"If you have been a regular gig-goer in Scotland over the past few years you may well have been lucky enough to have seen, heard, and marvelled at the singer/songwriter known as kitti. A jazz chanteuse in the torch tradition of Billie Holliday, Sara Vaughan and Dinah Washington, she has a voice that speaks of an old soul, someone who lives and breathes the music she sings." - Scots Whay Hae!
"She played to us a line of infectiously fabulous RnB tunes that were utterly catchy and brought to life so well by Katie and the most ample group of musicians she could have possibly picked for the job, and you knew they were making a noteworthy impression as a sea of bodies were joyfully swaying about, and how could you even resist doing that?" - Small Music Scene
1st - Prune Karlen
Born in Switzerland, Prune started playing music at a very young age, being classically trained in piano. During her BA in Music Performance at Edinburgh College, Prune was immersed in many different styles of music, with an emphasis on vocal jazz. This environment allowed her to explore various vocal techniques and to start developing her own sound. Since graduating with distinction in 2015, she is regularly singing across Scotland with fellow musicians and is involved in Community Music with Music in Hospitals & Care Scotland. She is a proud member of the ICU-Hear project launched at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in 2018.
8th - Rachel Lightbody
Rachel Lightbody is an acclaimed vocalist in the Glasgow music scene. A graduate of University of Strathclyde's BA in Applied Music course in 2011, she has worked non stop ever since as a front woman, backing vocalist and vocal and songwriting tutor. Recent notable achievements include her nominations for Best Vocalist in the 2018 and 2019 Jazz Awards; the featured vocalist in sold-out performances of Joni Mitchell's 'Court & Spark' (featured on BBC Radio Scotland 2018) and Carole King's 'Tapestry' with Start to End at Celtic Connections; and her work as a backing vocalist for Scottish singer Siobhan Miller, featured on BBC Quay sessions (2019).
15th - Jon Green
Jon Green is a trumpet player and composer from America and now based in Edinburgh. His latest recording, Nina Fairouz in the 21st Century! (jongreen.bandcamp.com) is a poetic mix of jazz, American folk music, and electronica. He'll be playing this music and more alongside some of Scotland's most creative musicians: Brodie Jarvie (bass), Graeme Stephen (guitar), and Martin Kershaw (sax). Not to be missed!
22nd - Mochi Robinson
Mochi Robinson is originally from Philadelphia and has recently moved to Edinburgh to continue his quest to create soulful music. Inspired by global sounds, he crafts an eclectic sound including the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, and Mulatu Astatke, Mochi likes to blend all of his influences into a pot and let them brew.
29th - Elaine Crighton Jazz Vocalist
