Meet Graham Ling: Classically trained from an early age, I wondered through the '80s not knowing what to listen to or play. Grunge happened to me in a big way, and I rocked throughout my twenties, but come my thirties I was looking for something as challenging as classical but with the raw emotion of rock music. It was then I discovered jazz, or rather, when a stranger approached me after a gig in Stonehaven and said that he would love to play saxophone on some of the blues numbers I played and lent me his Real Book.
From then on I was hooked. Ken and I became the KG Influence, which compliments my solo performances; more recently, I've been in-demand as a singer for established jazz bands such as Cindy Douglas Quartet, Lewis Benzies Group and Jazz Attic.
