Annette Gregory is a jazz singer who is blessed with incredible vocal tones that are rich, smooth and full of soul.
Annette grew up in Manchester in a Jamaican family where ska and country music were regularly played. Annette was definitely born to sing! At the age of four, she was put in charge of the record player and would sing along to Jim Reeves’ The Old Wooden Cross.
After singing for many years in different bands, it was a chance encounter which led to Annette joining a community jazz band as their principal vocalist which set Annette on the road to becoming a jazz singer. Annette attended The Guild hall of Music London – jazz vocal school.
Annette found her true voice after hearing Ella Fitzgerald, Annette was not just inspired by Ella sound but by the sound of jazz. Since then Annette has recorded her first EP Living the Dream, in 2014 and is currently touring with her Ella show across the UK.
Annette’s concept “to share my love of Ella Fitzgerald”.
Annette has taken her production on tour around the UK from February 2016.
As we approach Ella’s centenary year in 2017, Annette will be sharing her show ‘Ella – Celebrating 100 Years’.
