Kent based Singer covering London, Surrey, Sussex, Essex, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire.
Singer Ali Wheeler has definitely made her mark on the entertainment scene in Kent. As her population grows, her reputation has spread and she has been covering other areas of the UK. There has been a dramatic increase in demand for her as a jazz singer in Kent, Essex, Hertfordshire, Sussex, London and Hampshire.
Ali is no ordinary singer, she is very versatile as a singer and covers a wide spectrum of musical tastes, she was classically trained and is involved with a new wave pop band called Gulf. By her own definition she is a singer who is a bit jazzy, a bit country and a bit poppy.
Ali has performed extensively with her band Gulf and has recorded and released some of their songs. She found her groove on the airwaves when she landed a job on Kent’s Heart FM, co-hosting the Breakfast show. Her eclectic taste in music has enabled her to turn her hand to a variety of musical styles.
Ali has always felt very much at home singing jazz standards, and she is equally as comfortable with a rock ballad or a twelve bar blues number. Her passion for jazz has enabled her to sing with various jazz bands, including a performance at the launch of ‘The Jazz’ digital radio station alongside Joe Stilgoe and his band.
Then she met Eugene Portman and formed a duo consisting of a delightful combination of atmospheric jazz piano with melodic and contemporary vocals. The end result is a very fresh and unique sound.
Ali and Eugene guarantee you a warm and sophisticated musical background for your event. They will work with you to create a unique set list perfect for your special occasion using our wide repertoire of songs.
