About the event
Atila began singing at the age of 15 with a local big band Young Jazz, then in February 2002 was invited by Bill Ashton to work with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra. He has performed nationwide at venues including Pizza Express, The Sands Jazz Club, The Dorchester, The Royal Garden Hotel and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.
In June 2005 Atila released his first solo CD ‘Something Old, Something New’ accompanied by NYJO. Digby Fairweather critically acclaimed it as “the best I’ve heard from a British singer and orchestra since Dame Cleo and Sir John Dankworth’s “Shakespeare and All That Jazz”. Jack Bowers reviewing it for All-About-Jazz wrote “he’s only a step or two away from becoming one of the finest young jazz singers to emerge in quite some time.”
Still in his mid-twenties, this fast maturing performer has established himself as one of Britain’s most exciting swing singers. Sir John Dankworth predicts a very bright future with the possibility of Atila’s name eventually ending up in lights.
