Following on from our ‘launch’ in 2012, we are pleased to be able to present a second season of fresh, authentic music led by women.

Second of our double bills at the Vortex Jazz Club featuring some of the UK’s finest contemporary jazz groups with support from a younger generation of rising stars.

One small step for woman …

Laka D Charismatic vocalist, songwriter, “choir mistress from hell”, whose soulful voice was featured with The Guest Stars and Emma Peel Fan Club. Drawing on personal reworkings of a wide range  of material from Marvin Gaye, Billie Holiday and Chet Baker as well as her own songs, Laka D is a gifted singer whose voice really connects with the emotional centre of a song. She is joined by Deirdre Cartwright guitar, Alison Rayner bass and Dave Wickens drums, for a set of soul, gospel and blues inspired songs.

Nora Bite Trio

Studied at the Riga Dom Choir school, Riga, Latvia, Berklee summer school in Italy, and with Jerry Bergonzi in Spain before moving to London a few years ago where she mainly leads a trio playing original compositions.
