Her trio is made up of Johnny Murphy on keyboards who has among many live appearances been resident Piano Bar man on the QE2. Accompanied on Double Bass by Neil Harland who has played with many great jazz, soul and funk and folk artists including Katherine Tickell, Smoove and Turrell and Above and Beyond’s 2016 World tour.
