Music: Claire Martin - Believin' It

UK jazz vocalist Claire Martin, OBE takes to the road with her all-new Swedish trio of musicians to celebrate the release of her eagerly awaited new album Believin’ It, released in April 2019 and her 20th for Linn Records.

Hailed by The Sunday Times as "Our finest jazz singer", for over 30 years Claire has held audiences spellbound by her interpretation of song lyrics and her ability to reveal their stories with trademark warmth and authenticity while always remaining true to the jazz tradition.

Believin' It showcases the dazzling technique and lustrous timbre that has seen Claire eight times recipient of a British Jazz Award, in a masterfully crafted collection of songs spanning the last five decades and revitalised through the inspired arrangements of pianist Martin Sjöstedt, fast becoming one of Sweden's most sought after composer/arrangers.

Highlights include stylish, fresh renditions of popular songs such as Broken Wings by Mr. Mister and I'm Not in Love by 10cc alongside some of Claire's personal favourites by artists ranging from Joni Mitchell to Pat Metheny.

There's a tribute to legendary singer Lena Horne in a swinging version of Horne's Come Runnin and through a mesmerising version of Cherry Tree Song, Claire honours Norway's most celebrated jazz singer Karin Krog. An unmissable evening of song.

Her long-term commitment to championing the work of songwriters was recognised by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) with a Gold Badge Award in October 2018 and in November she was awarded her eighth British Jazz Award for Vocalist of the Year.

Claire comes to West Cumbria immediately after a two-date performance at the world-famous Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London, where she has appeared many times. She previously performed at Rosehill in 2011 and with celebrated composer, pianist and singer Sir Richard Rodney Bennett in 2010.
