A musical journey from Clubland to Jazzland
S-J’s sublime vocals – where Peggy Lee meets Nina Simone!
An iconic voice of our time…
S-J was known as the techno/dance diva, one of the original pioneers of electronic music in the nineties. Together with her then, partner Baby Doc – they enjoyed Worldwide success with their unique brand of dance music; Baby Doc & S-J headlined with Carl Cox, Judge Jules, Sonique, Sasha, Paul van Dyk and many more.
S-J scored national chart hits with “Fever”, “I Feel Divine” & “Shiver” as well as releasing 4 albums and many remixes, all supported by a loyal following of fans, attributing to her long-standing career in clubland.
More recently, S-J has successfully re-acquainted herself with her true love of jazz, fast-tracking her back to perform on London’s live jazz music scene & running her own successful night “Up Close & Personal” at Too2much (now The Box). S-J’s much applauded jazz talent has also helped establish a broader fan-base along with residencies at prestigious venues including Kensington Roof Gardens, Essence, Brixton Club House, Embassy Club, Hix Bar at the Belgraves Hotel, as well as hosting her own sell- out musical review at the Coqs Cabaret part of the Wolsey Group at Brasserie Zedel (formerly Atlantic Bar).
This year sees S-J returning to the recording studio with Steve Rodway, the extraordinarily talented pop producer pka Motiv 8 who most notably produced big name names, such as Gina G, Spice Girls, Pulp, St Etienne and the Pet Shop Boys.
Her continuing success reflects her fresh and vibrant ability to perform solo or with musicians; her live performances ooze class and clarity never failing to leave even the most sceptical “jazzophobes” “bedazzled” with intrigue, which almost certainly has a lasting impression & most likely leaving as fans.
Among S-Js, many gifted musical talents ; is her original and classy style accompanied by her uplifting persona, which in itself constitutes star quality. Her timeless and contemporary forte evokes classic performances by legendary artists such as Nina Simone, Peggy Lee, Judy Garland & many more, S-J succeeds in warming the audience with heartfelt moments of nostalgia mixed with emotions and memories that stand the test of time.
S-J is an established and well-respected artist & at still a relatively young age has successfully reinvented herself; surely she has earned her place within the realm of mainstream artists such as Michael Buble, Norah Jones & Jamie Cullum.
S-J’s aspiration for greater success continues under the management of James Horrocks at Gary Gray at React music management and publishing. For further information please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
