Simone, Kevin and Steve will be performing an evening of straight ahead jazz with elements of swing and Latin standards. There will be something for everyone with favourites from Peggy Lee, Billy Holiday, Diana Krall and Nancy Willson as well as old favourites, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Fats Waller! Beautiful ballads, dreamy Bossas and upbeat swing will be complimented by the trio's expertise and happy presence!
Simone Craddock's varied career has taken her across her native Australia, Asia, America and Europe, where she is now residing in London as a vocalist and songwriter. She has performed in some of the capital's best regarded venues, including Ronnie Scotts, Cadogan Hall, Pizza Express Live, and Live at Zedel. Abroad, she has performed to full houses at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, Palais de Festival in Cannes, Kursaal Theatre in Belgium, Lyric Theatre in Hong Kong and most recently, the Yacht Club de Monaco and Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo.
Simone's style and repertoire emerge from an eclectic musical upbringing in jazz, country, brass & big bands, with a sprinkling of pop and disco. Whilst her passion for jazz was originally fired by the classics; Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Ray Charles and her namesake Nina Simone, she continues to be inspired by contemporary artists, including Dave Matthews Band, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Melody Gardot and Amy Winehouse.
Simone's original compositions emerge from these influences and the experiences that have shaped her on her journey thus far.
