Biography of Fini Bearman

A graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Jazz Institute Berlin, singer and composer Fini Bearman is already being recognised on the London scene as an engaging and unique performer, and in 2010 she was nominated for Jazz Singer of the Year, alongside some of the cities top singers. She has been invited to sing and perform with various bands, including working with and featuring on the album ‘Mandorla’ by F-ire associate and saxophonist, Carlos Lopez Real, for which she was described as 'an emergent young vocalist', by Chris May from allaboutjazz.com, and was said to have dealt with the technically challenging music with ‘elegant assurance’, by Chris Parker from the Vortex Jazz Club.


Fini is busy performing and touring across the UK, as well as working frequently in Berlin and Germany, where she has a working band, Feenß Quartett, with whom she has also recorded an album, Taking Steps, yet to be released on a German Label. Fini has performed at various venues and festivals across Europe, including London’s Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express, the London Jazz Festival, the Berlin Jazz Festival and the cities famous A-Trane jazz club. She has also performed her songs on live radio (BBC Kent), BBC London, and recorded at London's famous Maida Vale studios.


Fini’s debut album ‘Step Up, is a collection of original songs, with a dizzying range of influences from João Gilberto to Gretchen Parlato and Norma Winstone. She writes songs that reflect her own experiences, both humourous, little ditties, and honest accounts on life, as well as setting poems by her favourite authors and poets. This music explores various corners of contemporary music, citing Brazilian and South American influences alongside Western Classical traditions, modern Jazz and Popular music.


Fini also sings with the London Vocal Project, which is a group of singers showcasing ‘some of the cities finest vocal talent’, who have already performed with Bobby McFerrin, Kenny Wheeler and Jon Hendricks.
