Brigitte Beraha

Biography

Brigitte Beraha performs as both ‘sideman’ and as a leader in an ever-expanding range of projects, from straight ahead jazz, singing jazz standard songs with lyrics, to more contemporary outlets, using her voice as an instrument. Brigitte is now recognised as one of the most versatile and interesting vocalists to emerge on the UK jazz scene in the last decade. As well as performing and recording with many of the legends of the UK jazz scene, including Kenny Wheeler, Chris Laurence, Paul Clarvis, John Parricelli, Bobby Wellins and Henry Lowther she is closely involved in the work of the new generation of jazz musicians and in particular the Loop and E17 jazz collectives. Drawing comparisons with such luminaries as Norma Winstone and Tania Maria, she has forged her own, very individual voice. With four albums to her credit, her album Babelfish was picked by Sebastian Scotney, founder of LondonJazz, as one of his top three albums of 2012.
