About Helen Abbey

Helen Abbey graduated from the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama with a Diploma in Performing Arts. She started her singing career with The Swing Sisters, an acapella group performing on the alternative cabaret scene, and The Seafood Mamas, a close harmony group with a regular slot at The Ritz Hotel.

Motherhood beckoned and her musical career went on hold while she took time out to raise her three children. She cites jazz vocal masterclasses with Claire Martin, Sheila Jordan and Ian Shaw as being the catalysts for finding her voice again. And her recent success at Pizza on the Park, Knightsbridge confirms that she is now firmly back on the scene.

After winning an award from the Arts Council England she teamed up with a group of fine British jazz musicians and brought in her songwriting partner Luigi Ferrara (who is also Italy's top jazz harmonica player). The result is her long awaited debut album. It delivers the best in a wide range of jazz styles - mainstream standards, swing, ballads, and a sprinkling of original songs. The album is a true reflection of Helen's inimitable smooth style and is called, appropriately, “Simply Me”. United Kingdom

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
