Event details

Unfortunately Liane is unwell and unable to perform. We hope to invite her back for a performance at a later date.

We are excited to welcome award-winning jazz singer-pianist Liane Carroll to Turner Sims as part of the Music Department’s free lunchtime concert series.

A soulful, emotive singer, London born and Hastings raised Liane is capable of reducing listeners to tears with her heart-breaking ability to inhabit a lyric or of making an audience jump for joy with her breath-taking vocal virtuosity.

What really makes Carroll stand out however is the way that she delivers every song as though she wrote it. A classically trained pianist since she was three, she possesses a true musicality that lifts her interpretations into the realms of art in their own right and to hear her sing even the best known standard or the most hackneyed pop song is to hear that song afresh.

In 2010 Liane signed to Quiet Money and released Up and Down featuring Kirk Whalum (saxophone) and the late Kenny Wheeler (flugelhorn). Ballads followed in 2013 with arrangements specially written by Los Angeles based, Grammy winning orchestrator Chris Walden. The album was launched during a sell-out five-night residency at London's renowned Pizza Express Jazz Club. Her most recent album Seaside and her third produced by James McMillan of Quietmoney were released on Linn Records in September 2015.

Happily settled in Hastings with husband (bassist) Roger Carey, Liane maintains a hectic schedule of touring both in the UK and abroad and regularly headlines at London’s legendary Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club.
