Singer/composer/arranger Louise Clare Marshall was pretty much born in to the business of singing, performing with her family at an early age and then studying at the specialist music school Chetham’s before winning a scholarship to the Guildhall School of Music. A truly versatile performer Louise is equally at home singing jazz and groove (as she will be tonight) as she is singing rock, musical theatre, or providing powerful vocals for dance music. Over the years she has worked with the likes of Beverley Knight, Robbie Williams, Van Morrison, Madeline Bell and Steve Winwood, as well as performing in various shows in London's West End, including “Soul Train”. Jools Holland was certainly one musician impressed with Louise’s work and for some years now she has been the featured singer with his band “Jools Holland and his Rhythm Orchestra”. And with her latest solo album “Beautiful” just released to considerable acclaim the future is looking very bright for this exceptionally talented artist. Her unsurprisingly impressive band includes Luke Smith (Whitney Houston, Eric Clapton)-keyboards, Dave Ital (Chaka Khan)-guitar and Winston Blissett (Massive Attack)-bass. And watch out for Louise’s Special Guest Lisa Grahame, one of the featured saxophonists with the Jools Holland Band for some years now, a great player and the perfect foil for Louise’s wonderful vocals.
