About the event

Born in London of Jamaican and Goan heritage Shireen learned her craft in Afro-Caribbean music, however, inspired by artists such as Marlena Shaw, Dianne Reeves and Nancy Wilson, she soon moved seamlessly in to a much more jazz influenced repertoire. These days her performances are rich and varied, including her own jazz and caribbean influenced originals. This afternoon Shireen will be bringing her excellent band to the Club, featuring Arnold Khanu-piano, Dominic Grant-guitar, Larry Bartley-bass and Kenrick Rowe-drums. As Shireen says "Expect an immersive and heartfelt journey of jazz, blues and gospel with a touch of the Caribbean...". Sounds fun!

"Quite simply Shireen is one of the best British Jazz vocalists of this generation" BBC Radio; "A brilliant vocalist whose beguiling performance left me wanting more" Jazzwise; "A beautiful artist with real depth and heart" Jazz UK
