The Jazz FM Awards 2013: Meet the Nominees: Liane Carroll – UK Vocalist of the Year

Liane Carroll

Liane Carroll was born in London and raised in Hastings, where she currently lives with her husband, bassist Roger Carey. She started playing the piano at the age of three, but soon developed a deep passion for everything jazz, soul and beyond.  Since 1993, Liane has appeared as a headline act at the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, where she has also recorded two live CD’s for their Jazz House label. She continues to be a regular at the celebrated 606 Club, in Chelsea.  In 2007, she continued a busy touring schedule with her trio as well as performing solo at the piano at many of the UK’s more intimate settings. In May, she picked up the award for ‘Best female jazz vocalist’ at the first ever Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Awards, and in June her trio make a head-line appearance at Glastonbury Festival, which went out live to over 300,000 listeners on BBC Radio 3.  Her eagerly awaited second solo album, ‘Slow Down,’ was released in September the same year with Splashpoint Records, and launched to a sell-out audience at the 606 Club in London. It has since received superb reviews and was in December picked by the Sunday Times as one of their top five jazz albums of the year. A track from the album was also featured by Mojo Magazine in their ‘Mojo’s Top 10’ Playlist selection.  In February 2008, Liane released her first DVD ‘Liane Carroll Trio LIVE,’ which featured a performance from the Brecon Jazz Festival originally broadcast as a documentary on BBC4. Liane went on to pick up the 2008 Parliamentary Jazz Award for ‘Musician Of The Year.’
