Liz Cass

Liz Cass is an exciting young vocalist emerging on the London Jazz scene. It is not only for her stunning looks and velvety vocals, but her unique and captivating performance style. Inspired by movies and old-style glamour, she brings something new and special to her repertoire of classic Jazz songs.

Liz has been performing jazz for over four years in the UK and abroad. Her start in music was co-writing and recording pop, collaborating with various London producers, but her interest in Jazz lured her away, and in 2004 she left for Sydney, and on arrival began networking and meeting musicians with the hope of kick-starting a Jazz career. She did just that, and within a couple of weeks had a string of gigs, a quintet made up of Sydney's top musicians, and before her return to London three months later, she had recorded her first Jazz CD. The years that followed have seen Liz go from strength to strength. She has been a regular at Pizza Express Jazz Club and Pizza On The Park, constantly selling them out, enjoyed a two year residency at Smollenky's On The Strand, and headlined at such high-profile events as 'The West End At War' and 'The West End Live' festivals, and the Regent Street Festival in London. In 2006 Liz was invited to perform two concerts with the Brass Group, in Palermo, Sicily, to mark to beginning of the Jazz Season at the famed Blue Brass Jazz Club. This was a huge honour for Liz as their previous guests have included Sarah Vaughan and Chet Baker - her Jazz idols. She has since performed at many high-profile private events, such as film parties at the Festival De Cannes, the Think Ball, compared by Sir Trevor McDonald, Music Week Awards pre-party, and several awards ceremonies at the Royal Albert Hall.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
