About Jazz Lates
Jazz Lates is a series of intimate Jazz events that take place in our wonderful living room. On Friday 17th January it is with great pleasure that we welcome Jelly Cleaver to the living room stage.
About the artist
Jelly Cleaver is a band leader, singer-songwriter, guitarist, and producer based in South London, and has been called ‘the next artist to make an impact on London’s Jazz Scene’ by Supreme Standards. With an eclectic taste in music, Jelly is heavily involved in both the jazz and DIY/punk scenes in London. She’s also an activist, and a strain of political dissent runs through her music.
Her latest album,
The Dream Jazz Manifesto , was released in May 2019, receiving critical acclaim and radio play by BBC Radio 1xtra, Rinse FM, Jazz FM, Worldwide FM, Soho Radio and others. As part of Tomorrow’s Warriors (alumni include Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia, Moses Boyd) she has performed at multiple festivals including Field Day, Love Supreme, Wilderness, Brainchild and London Jazz Festival.
“Following in the footsteps of numerous London musicians including Moses Boyd and Nubya Garcia is guitarist and vocalist Jelly Cleaver. Fans of Esperanza and Hiatus Kaiyote should take note” – Tina Edwards, Supreme Standards/Worldwide FM
“Cleaver is an artist who is pushing jazz forward way beyond her peers” – CF Smith, Twisted Soul
“An absurdly talented musician and songwriter” – Cassie Fox, LOUD WOMEN
