Biography of Faye Patton

A stunning new presence at the very cutting edge of the UK music scene...Faye Patton is in a class of her own as an unusual singer/songwriter whose music is difficult to categorise. She has a pioneering sound that owes much to the likes of Ray Charles, Scott Joplin, Junior Mance, Diamanda Galas, Theolonious Monk, Tori Amos, Nina Simone, Ricki Lee Jones, Herbie Hancock and Rachelle Ferrell. Her piano playing has attracted comparisons with Bill Evans and Horace Silver. Inspired by the great jazz keyboard players, her songs are lush, complex landscapes of love, loss, passion and inspiration....her rich, soul-inflected voice blending perfectly with her funky command of the piano. She is surely a formidable new talent with a wealth of original material. Though equipped with a pretty extensive repertoire of popular standards and a piano bar playing history, she chooses to focus on her own original music and is so far entirely independent.For the last 7 years, Faye has been gigging regularly in and around the underbelly of the London scene, both solo and with her talented guest musicians.Venues include:The Vortex Jazz Club, The Kashmir Klub (host to many international music stars, including Sheryl Crow),The Cobden Club, Ocean, The Spitz,The Union Chapel, Womens Anarchist Nuisance Cafe, Club Wotever, The Buffalo Bar, Nambucca, The Pelican, Notting Hill (Raison D'Etre),The Bedford, Tyme Piano Bar, Ruby Blue, Club 1001, Pizza on The Park, Bull's Head (Barnes), The Living Room, The Marie Lloyd Bar at the Hackney Empire, The Biddle Bros Bar, Spice of Life, HMS President, The Spyglass (Isle of Wight), Ulster University Great Hall, Stratford Circus, Stratford Theatre Royal East,and London's Edinburgh Cellars and Acoustic Cafe.Festivals: Jazznacht festival in Donaueshingen, Southern Germany, Hackney Spice festival, Isle of Wight Jazz festival, Derry Jazz festival.Visit the following for info/sales/listings and news.www.fayepatton.com (links to Facebook, Twitter and Myspace)www.myspace.com/fayepattonwww.fayepatton.wordpress.comwww.fayepatton.bandcamp.comCURRENT ALBUM 'GOING SOLO' OUT NOW!
