Following an incredibly successful 2019, which saw her win Vocalist of the Year at the Jazz FM Awards and perform at the Jazz Voice opening gala for the EFG London Jazz Festival alongside Corinne Bailey Rae and Cécile McLorin Salvant, hotly-tipped UK vocalist CHERISE has announced the release of her long-awaited debut EP 'Paradise'. Check out also titled 'Paradise' here.
Since graduating from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music in late 2017, Cherise has been invited to perform at many of the UK’s most prestigious venues and festivals ranging from the BBC Proms at The Royal Albert Hall and the Kennedy Centre in Washington D.C to Festival performances including the UKs Love Supreme Jazz Festival.
When asked about her approach as an artist and music, Cherise described her goal as... "To celebrate and draw from all the musical styles that I love without being defined strictly by any particular Genre.... to bring something fresh!"
Owing much of her earlier development to the highly-regarded educational group Tomorrow’s Warriors, nowadays she is glad to be involved in developing younger musicians through the same program as a both tutor and workshop leader. In 2020 expect new music and recordings from CHERISE in collaboration with the Afrobeat-Jazz Band Nubiyan Twist.
