Pianist and singer Wendy Kirkland has been a talent on the UK Jazz scene for many years, but it was her first album, Piano Divas, released in 2017 that began her ascent to wider recognition as a “Singing Pianist” (Jazz Journal). The ability to sing at the same time as comping and craft solos on the piano or unison piano/voice scat lines is her forte, with influences such as Diana Krall, Eliane Elias and Dena DeRose. Further accolades were given for Wendy’s 2019 album release The Music’s On Me, commented as “a huge leap forward” by Jazz Views. Both albums prompted Arts Council (England) funded tours in the UK – interrupted by Lockdown – and constant radio airplay ever since.
What they say:
“she’s a jazz pianist AND a jazz singer, and does both with feeling and flair” ★★★★ Nigel Jarrett, Jazz Journal
