Musician

Zeeteah Massiah

Born:

Take equal parts reggae, ska and dancehall. Simmer until grooving. Stir in soul and blues and sprinkle on a dash of jazz. Top off with sensuous, blistering vocals. That’s the recipe for Zeeteah Massiah’s mighty new sound of 2020. Delivered by a red-hot vocalist and some of the coolest musicians around, it’s musical dynamite. Zeeteah is fresh and tangy, bittersweet and intense, velvety and elegant. Born in Barbados, raised in London, she is one of the most exciting live singers performing today. If her music doesn’t move you, check your pulse. Zeeteah has had a No. 1 US dance hit and performed with stars including Tom Jones, Robbie Williams, Phil Collins and Sting

Musician

Klas Jervfors Turner

Born:

I was born and now I'm alive... I play various brass instrument with various success. “For me the longing to be able to live in harmony with family, nature, work and music has always been a soul searching quest. I still search for that state of mind and balance in life where everything is just flow. The fishermen in the film had their challenges and anxieties that came out of their way of living. Just as the fishermen I have my fair share of those thoughts from where I stand, a midlife father, working in the rat race… But, that can´t keep me of dreaming of something bigger and better

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
