TYPE OF EVENT : Young Jazz Musicians, Jazz, Folk & Soul

The UK is home to some of the world's finest music academies, several of them are in London and one in particular, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, is virtually on Toulouse Lautrec's doorstep. We've decided to offer GSMD students a residency they can call their own, to give our audience and us an opportunity to get to know these exceptional up and coming young players. We'll be seeing a lot of them in the future, but why wait?
Come down any Monday night and enjoy a lot of them right now.

This week Guildhall in Focus presents

Lydia Bell (Vocals) & Tom Coppin (Guitar)

"Vibrant vocal-piano jazz duo."

Lydia Bell and Ed Rice, both postgraduate jazz students at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, approach their own interpretations of jazz standards in a lyrical and expressive way, and will be exploring both sensitive and swinging sides to jazz, as well as other influences drawn from artists such as Carole King and Joni Mitchell.

"Lydia Bell...whose sultry vocal acrobatics and innate inner rhythm all add up to a sparkling, versatile performance."
Filabusta Music 2016

Lydia is in her first year of study on the Jazz Artist Masters course at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and her lifelong love of singing in harmony led her to form the group. Lydia has a mature, warm tone, reminiscent of the great jazz singers from the 1940s, from where she draws huge influence. She combines a classic jazz sound with an exceptional ear, and pins down the three's harmonies with her low alto lines. She is quickly making an impression with her jazz vocals in London, where she has some exciting big band projects coming up.
