ANTHONY STRONG is a fast rising new star on the British jazz scene. The singer/pianist has played sell-out shows at the London and Cheltenham Jazz Festivals and MICHAEL PARKINSON has already drawn a comparison with JAMIE CULLUM while CULLUM has himself championed STRONG, describing him as “a great singer… a great pianist”.
STRONG is currently in the middle of an 8 concert mini tour taking in places like Basingstoke, Hastings, Birmingham, Milton Keynes and Manchester and if you’re anywhere near those places it’s well worth checking out local listings.
In the meantime ANTHONY has just issued a five track EP which typifies his style and sound. Four of the tracks are covers of standards like ‘It’s Delovely’ and ‘Tea For Two’ while the fifth cut is a lovely, light original song called ‘Going Nowhere’. Listening, it’s easy to why SIR MICHAEL made the CULLUM comparison but there’s also shades of MICHAEL BUBLÉ and HARRY CONNICK in STRONG’S sound.
