Katriona Taylor – Blind Passion Album Launch Tour

2nd October / 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Blind Passion is Katriona Taylor’s fifth album release. Singer/songwriter Katriona, who is visually impaired herself, celebrates the music of blind artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano, Diane Schuur and Ray Charles, as well as some of her own original songs. This superb album is a blend of Jazz, Latin & Soul, for which Jools Holland has kindly contributed one of his songs. Katriona has performed with the likes of George Benson and the James Taylor quartet and her silky smooth vocals compliment her outstanding arrangements. The album features an array of the UK music industry’s finest musicians. Talking about her latest music video: “I really enjoyed shooting this video of Makes Me Wanna Stay, it was great fun and it’s one of my favourite tracks on the new album Blind Passion.”

Vasilis Xenopoulos – sax

Peter Hammond – Piano

“Katriona Taylor’s album “Blind Passion”, in which she celebrates the music of blind artists such as Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Diane Schuur and José Feliciano, is such a wonderful project. With her top-flight band she has made a real success of it”  Sebastian Scotney, Editor, London Jazz News
