Kate Earl featured on BBC Introducing

Kate Earl, Alaskan singer with 1920’s vibe

Kate Earl recently contacted us to be her support band in a live performance for the BBC Introducing performing arts programme.

As a band for hire in the UK, we are used to playing in some wonderful places and entertaining party guests up and down the UK.

When we’re not in party-mode and getting people dancing, we also perform alongside other musicians for various recordings and sessions. Every so often we have the pleasure of playing with someone really special – and Kate Earl stands out as one of the best artists we have ever worked with.

Hailing from a small town in Alaska, Kate Earl is now London-based (via Los Angeles). In her own words, her music is “steeped in the tradition of the church, giving it that heart meets soul feel”.

Earl has a real 1920’s vibe about her, both in terms of her style and her sound. So, who better for her to turn to than the best 1920’s themed act for hire in Britain – The Jazz Spivs.

We worked on the arrangements and performed the numbers with Kate Earl, which was an absolute pleasure. And, as if working with her wasn’t pleasure enough, we were also given the opportunity to ply our trade at none other than the famous Maida Vale studios in London.

It was a big deal for the whole band, given the studio’s rich history (David Bowie, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin…the list goes on), but also because we’re all big fans of Kate Earl’s music. We would love to work with Kate again and would urge you not to miss out on her live performances.
