“A wonderful singer with a great musical ear'', Claire Martin OBE
Described by her mentor Claire Martin OBE as “A wonderful singer with a great musical ear and
natural jazz feel.'', Fleur Stevenson is fast establishing herself at the forefront of an exciting new
breed of jazz vocalists taking London by storm. Gifted with a honeyed tone, an offbeat sense of
humour and a naturally charismatic stage presence, Fleur creates an instant rapport with her
audience through sparkling narrative and an unerring instinct for choosing the right material to
showcase her talent.
Her phrasing, use of space and improvisational ability nod to obvious influences from the greats
such as Shirley Horn and Anita O’Day but Fleur is carving a niche all of her own with her surprising
yet stylish interpretations of jazz standards and her tender, heartfelt delivery of romantic ballads.
A treat for fans of first class, straight ahead vocal jazz delivered by one of the UK’s fastest rising
Fleur enjoys collaborations with many of the UKs top musicians including Gareth Williams, David
Newton, Pete Billington, Frank Harrison and Brandon Allen to name a few. She performs at many
prestigious venues across the UK, including the legendary Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, 606 Club and
Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho.
After a well received EP, Fleur launched her debut album at Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho in July
2019. The album entitled 'Follow Me' features arrangements of well known standards, as well as
jazz arrangements of some lesser known vintage pop songs. Highlights include a samba
arrangement of King Crimson’s ‘I Talk to the Wind’ and a tender jazz ballad treatment of the Presley
classic ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’.
As well as some great audience feedback from the album launch show, Fleur's album reviewed
some top reviews. Highlights include:
There is attention to detail in every track and very clear nods to the composers, yet each number is
also imbued with originality… This album is class.” Something Else

“Stevenson is in possession of a voice which has power - yet she has the control to drop down to a
caress in a heart-beat. And she can scat; boy, can she scat!”
''Fleur Stevenson is a relaxed jazz vocalist with a bright voice, good phrasing and the ability to
swing at any tempo.''
