Esther is one of the jazz scene’s most highly respected and widely loved vocalists. She juxtaposes sensitivity with a sparky sense of humour with her song delivery leaving audiences utterly compelled. Her innate sense of musicality, gleaned from her earlier years of saxophone playing and study of the jazz idiom, inform a voice that has individuality, originality and flair.
Esther’s debut album Just in Time was produced by multi award winning singer Ian Shaw and launched at London’s 606 Club in 2005. Since then, she has carved out a prestigious career as a jazz singer, performing extensively in major venues in and around London, across the country and in Europe, accompanied by some of the UK’s leading jazz musicians.
Her repertoire chooses original material, highly individual interpretations of jazz standards and popular songs and selections from the Duncan Lamont Songbook.

“Esther is a rare breed of performer who truly commits herself to expressing the lyrics of a song and bringing them to life in a new and innovative way” – Sound Generation
