The Ritz Trio are often asked if they can add a singer to the line up, well we are pleased to say we can! Over the recent years we have had the pleasure of working with some of the top vocalist on the jazz scene. Here are some for you to consider! Should you be interested in this option please ask.
Kerry started singing about 15 years ago at open mic jazz nights, and from there went on to sing with the University of Edinburgh Jazz Orchestra (17 piece ‘big band’), and shortly after that performed in the Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival where she was invited back in following years. Several years ago saxophonist Courtney Pine named her ‘unsigned artist of the week’ on his Radio 2 Jazz Crusade programme and played her recording of I’ve Got You Under My Skin commenting on her “beautiful smokey voice”.
Miriam is an experienced West End performer having appeared in many shows such as Mamma Mia and Chicago. She is also a keen and experienced jazz singer having sung at various cabaret and venues and functions and is currently a resident singer at the uber cool Shoreditch House in London. Born and bred in Glasgow she flits between there and the south regularly-wherever her beautiful voice takes her.
Iain has been singing for over 20 years. In that time he has sung with all the main big bands in Scotland, he is also a regular with the Debbie Curtis Radio Big Band in London.
There have been many highlights over the years including singing at The London Palladium twice, doing the BBC Scotland Hogmanay show, singing to 10,000 women at the Moonwalk Charity event and also appearing at the opening of the BBC studios at Pacific Quay.
