“Fletcher is the real deal, and she doesn’t copy anybody else.” John Forham, The Guardian

“Respectfully traditional and excitingly contemporary”Lee Gibson, Music Magazine

“One of the UK’s top jazz singers” Ronnie Scott’s Magazine

“A very talented jazz singer with that lovely gift of cool restraint”Campbell Burnhap, Jazz FM

“Fletcher sings with precise measures of verve and introspection called for by the songs, and her voice is always assured and aurally pleasing.” Bruce Crowther, Jazz Journal

Born in Kingston Upon Thames into a musical family (her parents were singers, her stepfather a saxophonist). Liz has performed all over Europe, the Far East and USA. Influenced by Peggy Lee and Julie London with a love for Ella and Chet Bakers’ phrasing, and a passion for Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, the Crusaders and many of the early fusion bands, Liz developed her own style.

She has recorded three solo albums to date – Mellow Mania – Liz Fletcher Live In The Park and Blue Afternoons that were collaborations with the song-writer, Rupert Wates. She has also recorded Two cd’s with music composed by world class saxophonist Alan Barnes and lyrics by British playwright Alan Plater. Liz’s voice is featured on many other recordings.

Liz has performed in Jazz Clubs and Festivals such as Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express Dean Street, The Festival Hall, The 606 Club, Glastonbury, Ealing Jazz Festival, Southport Jazz Festival, Swanage Jazz Festival, Scarborough Jazz Festival, Zoetermeer Jazz Festival Holland. In 2015 Director of The Jazz Repertory Company, Richard Pite invited Liz to put together a show of Nina Simone songs and in May 2015 Liz performed this show at Cadogan Hall with Nigel Price, Christian Vaughan, Julie Walkington and Richard Pite. The show was a great success and has been performed at Canary Wharf Boisdale.

Liz has been involved with various contemporary projects. She Supported Nina Simone at a Festival in Greece with World/Dubtronica band Loop Guru and recorded vocals for Phil Parnell on his electronica album “Do your living in the night” from which the single “Run Away” with vocals by Liz was released in May 2003. The song was highly acclaimed by Radio 1 DJ Giles Peterson and Mr Scruff and was well received in the USA, Germany, France, Canada and Ireland. In 2006 found Liz involved in a writing project with Mobo award winner, Ceri ‘Sunship’ Evans, the pianist and founder member of the ‘The Brand New Heavies’ who was one of the musicians she began her jazz singing career with. In 2012, Liz set up her own recording label called AudioLoob on which she released the album simply entitled ‘Liz’. This project was an opportunity for her to include recordings of some self penned songs and show off her skills as a producer.

We are thrilled to have this wonderfully experienced woman gracing the Notting Hill Unplugged stage, a show not to be missed!

Organiser

Book and Kitchen

Book and Kitchen's dedicated music evening hosted seasonally – bringing together a host of talented musicians in an intimate setting. Preview some of the shows here: You Tube channel. “If you had been off on a short jazz jaunt to New York and had come across a comfortable, civilised bookshop in Greenwich Village with tasty food and wine and someone, say Sheila Jordan, performing, chances are that you would come back and wonder why the much touted culture capital of the world doesn’t seem to have such places. Well we’ve got one, and it’s a gem, Book and Kitchen in All Saints Rd, Notting Hill…. warm and welcoming, not recital room sterile at all, with a high level of communication that is much harder to achieve in a larger venue.” LONDON JAZZ
