Internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist and songwriter Victoria Klewin brings a feast of classic jazz standards and sparkling original songs to Jazzland.
Inspired by the golden age of 50’s/60’s jazz, blues, and soul, Victoria is a spellbinding singer full of sass and vintage sophistication.
In recent years Victoria has been dividing her time between solo work as a jazz singer playing with a variety of players and bands throughout the UK and Europe, and her role as a backing vocalist/songwriter in internationally acclaimed soul band Hannah Williams and The Affirmations. She is a staple on the South West circuit and often touring in Europe. Her series of tribute performances entitled ‘Victoria Klewin Sings…’ has allowed her to explore the repertoire of some great icons and composers of Jazz such as Hoagy Carmichael, Ella Fitzgerald and, most recently, Blossom Dearie.
