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
