She toured extensively throughout the 90s with Oasis, Pulp and Robert Wyatt and can be heard on the CD soundtrack to the recent Disney release, Cars 3.
Her latest project, Red Alert, is a vehicle for her unique contemporary jazz compositions, drawing on her wide-ranging influences from Dave Brubeck to David Bowie and Herbie Hancock to Goldfrapp, combine interesting timescapes and modern beats with a cinematic texture and are underpinned by a mature and inventive jazz vocabulary.
21:30 Livi Graham Trio
London based vocalist, Livi Graham, will be bringing to The Library a distinctly personal selection of songs, delivered in her own uniquely natural vocal style, and supported by exciting, young musicians Michael Shrimpling (dbl bass) and Daniele Diodato (guitar). Currently studying at Trinity Laban Conservatoire, Livi has honed her skills with some of the UKs finest jazz musicians, namely Brigitte Beraha, Pete Churchill and Simon Purcell and has performed at prominent venues across the UK. Her trio takes influence from traditional and contemporary jazz such as Billie Holiday, John Coltrane, Bill Frisell and combines it with the lyrical story-telling of artists like Joni Mitchell and Carol King.
