Sunshine Coast's Own - Robyn Brown
Coming to Noosa Jazz Club on 23rd February.
With an extensive repertoire that covers early blues, swing standards, latin, bebop, soul jazz and self-penned originals, her particular passion is the songs of the early jazz/blues singers. Paying tribute to the great Ladies of Jazz, Robyn and band will be sharing some of the timeless classics from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae and more.
Joined by highly respected jazz musicians:
Peter Walters (bass), Ross Nixon (piano), Trent Bryson-Dean (drums) and Rob McWilliams (trumpet)
they bring their own swinging interpretations of many of the standards that you know and love, plus some hidden gems you may never have heard before. This intimate performance will be a window into the past, reliving the songs of another era and often sharing the stories behind them.
In just a few years this silky-voiced Sunshine Coast singer has captivated local audiences with her passionate performances. Robyn has performed regularly at jazz clubs and festivals around the country, released three CDs with many songs receiving radio airplay, toured with International Guitarist Libor Smoldas, organises a regular jazz event on the Sunshine Coast called “The Jazz Sessions”, is the organiser of several Jazz Festivals and has become a highly-respected singer in the Queensland jazz scene.
Now, she is excited to be performing the music she loves at Noosa Jazz Club accompanied by some of Queensland’s finest jazz instrumentalists
“Infusing the blues with elegance and jazz with attitude, Robyn’s fine-grained tones imbue her music with relaxed phrasing, poise, confidence and a subtle sense of swing.” Rhythms Magazine
