Policy Statement

This event is being organised by a local committee of musicians and jazz fans.

Our aim is to promote jazz on the Isle of Wight. Members of the committee will not receive any financial reward. Inspected accounts will be made available on request.

The committee will cover the cost of the main venues and headline acts. This will be funded by sponsorship, ticket sales and other fund-raising activities.

Any subsequent profits will go towards funding future events.

We will encourage other performances during the period. However, we will not act as agents. It will be the responsibility of the performers and venues to negotiate between themselves.

Liane Carroll

Rod Youngs Liane Carroll has been a pillar of the British jazz and soul scene for over thirty-five years.

Born in London and raised in Hastings; from the beginning of her musical career at the age of fifteen, she has dedicated her life to creating a deep and abiding connection with audiences all over the world through her exceptional talent, versatility and ability to truly interpret a song.

Along the way she has collaborated with such diverse artists as Paul McCartney, Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin OBE, Joe Stilgoe and drum and bass outfit London Elektricity with whom she headlined in 2016 at Finsbury Parks Hospital in the Park festival. She will appear with them again at Glastonbury Festival 2017.

Equally at home in intimate jazz venues and vast performance spaces, in the summer of 2016 Liane took part in the BBC Late Night Proms performing at The Royal Albert Hall with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra Of Scotland.

Liane is a great supporter of young and emerging artists and is much in demand by youth orchestras, ensembles and colleges for her inspirational approach to teaching. She runs regular workshops for aspiring vocalists at all levels of experience and teaches at the revered Guildhall School Of Music and Drama.

As a recording artist Liane has gained much critical acclaim. Her four most recent
albums (Slow Down, Up and Down, Ballads, Seaside) all earned a four star review in The Guardian newspaper. Her latest release Seaside (Linn Records), homage to her life by the coast, is her third with Grammy nominated producer James McMillan of QuietMoney Studios and holds a coveted British Jazz Award for Best New CD (2015).

As well as Lianes solo performances; her current projects include her Trio with her husband bassist Roger Carey and drummer Russell Field and a vocal trio with long time friends Sophie Bancroft and Sara Colman.
