Jeanie has rapidly built up a highly respectable reputation from within the Jazz quarters and has an array of highly credible performance credits having supported the likes of icon Georgie Fame, sung BVs for Luddy Samms (The Drifters) and performed for British legends Shirley Bassey and Pierce Brosnan. Her performances have taken her all over the world with her song showcased at the Cannes International Film Festival and a cruise on the Seine in Paris. Over the years Jeanie has become a favourite in reputable venues such as The Jazz Cafe, The 606 club, Ronnie Scott's and even made an appearance in the highly prestigious National Theatre.

"Jeanie's vocals are a touch of class with a sound that is both stylish and personal and characterized by a refreshingly English delivery…" John O'Neill, former Jazz critic of The Sunday Times

As well as her performance at the Pheasantry, 2020 also sees Jeanie celebrating her penned release; 'SOON', an emotive song about the coming of Spring and the hope that brings. It is the first cut and lead track taken from Jeanie's latest album entitled 'Moments of Clarity'; this third album is an electro-orchestral feast, featuring Jeanie on vocals and keys alongside the much heralded Simon Paterson (Professor of Music Technology at Nottingham University) on bass, synths, percussion and production. This album also features colossus Tony Kofi on alto sax and Scott Philbrick Jazz Prize Winner Hugh Pascall on trumpet.

"Really powerful… Just divine!" Dean Jackson at BBC Introducing.
