About

A supremely individual singer/songwriter, guitarist and pianist. A veteran of Derry and Isle of Wight Jazz festivals...with a pleasingly retro yet contemporary sound inspired by jazz keyboard greats such as Ray Charles, Scott Joplin, Herbie Hancock, Nina Simone, Diamanda Galas and Horace Silver. Original songs combining gutsy, fluid vocals that have been compared to Judy Garland and prodigiously funky, groove-ridden command of the piano and guitar. A compelling lyricist as well as singer/instrumentalist, at home in varying categories, from Nu-jazz to blues, soul and pop, Faye Patton represents a formidable new talent that defies musical boundaries. She plays with her own band and solo. Recent engagements include The Pheasantry, Ray's Jazz and Soho Theatre piano bar. Faye also plays session guitar for UK chill-out phenomenon, Lazy Hammock.
