Louise Victoria – Vocals

Chris Jones – Bass
Mark Whitlam Drums & Electronics

Led by the songwriting team of vocalist Louise Victoria and drummer, Mark Whitlam, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Neo-Soul, R’n’B and Down Tempo genres. Louise’s voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens. Musically there are nods in the direction of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack and Lamb.

“…clear musical ideas used as the basis for fresh interpretation within their chosen form, and thanks to the singer’s confidence and clarity the results have an integration that belies the comparative newness of their project.”” – Tony Benjamin, bristol247.com

****************

St Ives Jazz Club was set up in June 1998, and every Tuesday since then, we’ve had the privilege of hearing top class modern jazz in beautiful St Ives.

We’ve been shortlisted twice in the Parliamentary Jazz Awards as Jazz Venue of the Year and won it in 2015 – we’re one of the best jazz clubs in the UK – that’s official!

The club features some of the greatest international and UK musicians, top class regional and resident players, promising young talent and college bands, all within a varied programme which runs every Tuesday, open to all ages – and at a reasonable price!
