Kerry has a sultry jazz style, with a smoky sensual voice which has been likened to that of Diana Krall. Her main influences are the great jazz divas of their time: Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee and Julie London. However Kerry also relishes re-creating the vintage sounds of Doris Day, Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee and Connie Francis.

To introduce a more contemporary vibe to her repertoire, Kerry covers the music of jazz/popular artistes such as Madeleine Peyroux, Caro Emerald and Imelda May. As a unique offering, Kerry can bring a touch of the ‘femme chanteuse’ to your wedding, party or corporate event with her inspiring French jazz set. Combining her love of the French language with her love of the jazz genre means that Kerry will treat you and your guests to something rather special for your event.

When we planned last spring a French themed evening, “April in Paris”, at The Deck Café we wanted something to elevate the atmosphere of the evening beyond our bistro styled décor and the classic French cuisine. Kerry provided that dimension with her superb collection of French Jazz Classics, a balanced and very special programme beautifully sung. Since then Kerry has proved her versatility with vintage vocal entertainment for the Deck Café “on Tour” and at private functions at the Deck. Her blend of classic nostalgia and contemporary music from artists like Caro Emerald, upbeat and mellow, all delivered with Kerry’s engaging personality ensures memorable entertainment and a very special ambiance.

Kerry sang at our wedding last weekend and was simply amazing. Everyone has commented on what a beautiful voice you have and how much they enjoyed listening to you. The songs you sang during the BBQ really set the tone for what turned into an amazing evening.It’s been a huge compliment that many of our guests have said they would have loved their weddings to be like ours. It was a perfect day and we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us. You were a pleasure to work with and a joy to listen to.

Thank you again so much for supporting our Strictly Vintage Tea Dance. It was so kind of you and Dave to give your free time to perform at the event and we really appreciate your support. Please do extend my thanks to Dave too.I had seen you before and knew what a treat we were in for, but many of the other staff/volunteers  and guests were blown away. The ‘Jazz Break’ as some of the guests have referred to, was absolutely wonderful. A really good performance, so much so that I noticed several of our guests didn't want a break and in fact carried on dancing. The set was spot on.
