Awarded vocalist of the year at the UK JazzFM Awards, Lauren Kinsella is an in demand performer and composer in the UK and Europe. Her practice in contemporary music spans the alternative, jazz, improvised and folk worlds with equal fascination and her performance schedule is a testament to her profile as both a leader and collaborator. She has released albums on Edition Records, WideEarRecords, Diatribe and Two Rivers Records and her work is reviewed worldwide with her music regularly featured on BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 6, Jazz FM and RTE Lyric FM.

Following the success of her PRSF Women Make Music application, she will embark on a UK tour with her own ensemble commencing this July. The group includes saxophonist Tom Challenger, pianist Dan Nicholls, bassist Conor Chaplin and drummer Simon Roth; four innovative performers and improvisers in the UK that she is very excited to tour with. Showcasing new music, originally commissioned by Marsden Jazz Festival, she will perform at several festivals and venues around the country including Manchester Jazz Festival and the Jazz North ‘Women Make Music’ series. Through her songs, Lauren’s music draws inspiration from a number of sources including the natural world, our social and cultural footprints and observations about contemporary life. As seen in other projects that she is involved in such as Snowpoet, both the sung and spoken word play an important role in her work.
