“A wonderful UK singer who really has a very individual sound and a great choice of repertoire as well… I’ve been playing her on the show a lot, (I) really love her versions of standards and her original tunes as well. The music she has been creating with Nostalgia 77 over the past few years is some of my favourite British vocal jazz of recent times” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
