Winner BBC Jazz Awards 2005/6 & Parliamentary Jazz Awards Musician of the Year 2008
The first artist ever to win two BBC Jazz Awards in the same year, for Best Vocalist and Best of Jazz, Liane Carroll is a dynamic vocalist and pianist whose amazing talent has been captivating audiences around the world. She is recognised as one of the finest singer/pianists on the scene, working with the likes of Gerry Rafferty, Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Paul McCartney, and has been a featured performer at Glastonbury Festival.
Her shows have been received with universal acclaim, leading to an hour-long special on BBC TV featuring her performance at the Brecon Jazz Festival. Her albums “Up and Down” and “Ballads” on Quiet Money Records, produced by Grammy-nominated trumpeter/producer James McMillan, garnered impressive reviews while "Seaside", on Linn Records received a Parliamentary Jazz Award nomination for “Jazz Album of the Year”.
Similarly her most recent release "The Right To Love", also produced by James on Quiet Money, has been equally rapturously received. A world-class performer, her powerful blues-tinged voice combined with strong piano playing and exciting infectious material, not to mention a wicked sense of humour, make this a truly remarkable gig.
