Biography of Kaz Simmons

Raised in Hove, East Sussex, Kaz made her stage debut singing at the age of four at the Brighton Dome. She gained Grades 1-8 on both classical guitar and singing, and won awards at local festivals.
In 2000, Kaz graduated from Goldsmiths College, London with a BMus. Whilst singing in the Goldsmiths College Big Band, she found her love for jazz and began studying with Laura Zakian. Immediately after graduating, she flew to Crete for a residency in the harbour town of Chania, with a jazz quintet featuring Lyn Dobson (Manfred Mann, Soft Machine, Nick Drake) and Stuart Ritchie.

In September 2002 Kaz began a Post Graduate Diploma in Jazz Performance at Trinity College of Music under the tutorage of Dominic Ashworth, Anton Browne, Trudy Kerr, Anita Wardell and Nick Weldon. She left Trinity with a Distinction.

She has performed at venues around the country including The Vortex, Pizza on the Park, Spice of Life, National Theatre, De La Warr Pavilion (Bexhill-on-Sea), The British Library, Blackheath Halls, Zefirellis (Cumbria), Colchester Arts Centre, Joogleberry Playhouse (Brighton), The National Portrait Gallery and The Victoria and Albert Museum.
