Kaz Simmons

Kaz is an increasingly acclaimed, young UK singer, songwriter & guitarist. Her second album Different Smile, is a new departure of originals and arrangements with Spanish and Brazilian classical guitar styles as well as influences from the likes of Rufus and Martha Wainwright, The Divine Comedy, and her background in jazz.

Kaz’s original compositions showcase her conversational, often humorous lyrics coupled with an unaffected delivery and accomplished guitar playing, complemented by the sensitive and uncluttered support of a fine young British band : Sam Crockatt – tenor sax, Ivo Neame – piano & Fender Rhodes, Simon Thorpe- bass and Dave Smith – drums. Ife Tolentino also makes a guest appearance on percussion.
