Liane Carroll, Roger Carey & Roger Odell at Jazznights – The Bell Hotel, Clare on Sunday 7th January 2018

Liane Carroll (born 9 February 1964, London) is an English vocalist, pianist and keyboardist.[1]

Jazz critic Dave Gelly of The Observer has described her as “one of the most stylistically flexible pianists around, with a marvellous, slightly husky singing voice”.[2] According to John Fordham of The Guardian, she is “a powerful, soul-inflected performer with an Ella Fitzgerald-like improv athleticism and an emotional frankness on ballads”.[3] Peter Quinn of Jazzwise, says: Liane Carroll has that rare ability to meld effortless, often transcendent vocal and piano technique, with heart stopping emotion and soul bearing power.”[4] Nick Hasted of The Independent says that she is “still frustratingly little-known” but calls her “one of Britain’s most emotionally visceral and accomplished singers”.[5]

Her five albums since 2009 have each received four-starred reviews in The Guardian or The Observer.
