Andrea Mann

Andrea Mann's relaxed and smoky vocal style has been compared to those of Diana Krall and Julie London. But her mixture of classic material from the Great American Songbook, Brazilian bossa novas and arrangements of pop songs by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney and Coldplay - as heard on her debut album 'Photograph' - makes her approach to jazz singing unique as well as accessible and easy on the ears.

Andrea has been singing professionally for just four years. Based in London, and working with some of the finest musicians in the UK, she now performs at jazz venues, private parties and corporate functions all over the country - and the places she has played include the Oxford Jazz Festival, 606 Club, Kensington Palace and the Royal Society of Arts. In 2008, she also had a two-month residency at the five-star G Hotel in Penang, Malaysia.

Praise for Andrea's debut album 'Photograph' -

“'Photograph' is a ballad set, and Andrea Mann's straightforward, sometimes-minimalist approach, is backed by a crackerjack quartet that can play midnight jazz and sunny bossa nova. Mann handles American standards such as 'Scotch And Soda,” 'East of the Sun' and 'Travelin' Light' with ease, but she chooses her repertoire carefully. Macca's 'Every Night' should have been done in a jazz context decades ago, and the vocalist also brings out new elements in Coldplay's 'Sparks'. These are mostly covers, but - as with her fine original, 'Yosemite' - Andrea Mann swings through an old profession in new and beguiling ways.” - Rhapsody.com (staff pick)

“Andrea's charming debut finds her relaxed and assured jazz vocals slide effortlessly above the smooth backing supplied by a crack team of London- and Oxford-based jazz musos
