Zoe Gilby Quartet

Winner of Parliamentary Jazz Awards Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2019 Zoe Gilby’s  “Aurora” album is out now. Inspired by the instrumental compositions of award winning, Grammy nominated U.S trumpeter Tom Harrell. This melodic, sharply conceived music has been augmented with lyrical interpretations written by Zoë.

“Award winning vocalist Zoe Gilby is back with an album which sees her appending smart new lyrics to some of Tom Harrell’s finest instrumentals” Jazzwise 4star review – Peter Quinn

Zoë Gilby is a vocalist and songwriter, making a stunning impression on the music scene today. Her compelling original compositions are written with double bassist husband Andy Champion. A powerful collection of songs with a strong narrative. Supported by guitarist Mark Williams and drummer John Bradford  they deliver a commanding mix of musical sophistication and dramatic edge. An engaging repertoire of story telling and atmosphere, her stockpile of music also includes an adventurous blend of contemporary composers from Kate Bush to Pink Floyd and the sensitive treatment of jazz standards, completes this particular “story-book” Touring the UK and internationally, she continues to perform at prominent jazz festivals and venues.
