Jazz vocalist and poet, Lou Beckerman with pianist Joss Peach
With an eclectic embrace of various musical genres, Lou's improvisational style and soulful sound remain deeply rooted in jazz. Her repertoire spans cherished standards from the Great American Songbook to contemporary compositions, including her own original works and vocalese. Her musical journey has included television appearances and the release of two albums: 'My Gift to You,' a healing and well-being exploration, and the jazz-infused 'Into the Blue.' She has graced stages across the UK and the USA.
Joss Peach, a BAFTA award-winning composer and pianist, stands as one of the UK's most sought-after event performers. His remarkable ability to reimagine familiar songs with inventive interpretations, combined with his warm and engaging stage presence, has solidified his status as a beloved artist.
Lou's poetry transcends the written word, merging seamlessly with musical expression. Together, Lou and Joss invite you to unwind this afternoon as their songs and poems embark on a captivating journey. Their performance will intertwine jazz with selections from 'Welcome to the Now,' Lou's recently published illustrated poetry collection. At the core of Lou's artistic endeavors lies her unwavering passion for delivering enriching experiences to her audiences, infusing events with warmth and vibrancy.
