The media refer to #1 selling artist, Aubrey Logan as “The Queen of Sass.” And it’s easy to see why. Her concerts are a mix of excellent musicality, jaw-dropping vocals, expert trombone-playing, a breathtaking array of originals and original takes on cover songs and, well…fun! Her heart wrenching musical stories has audiences in tears just before her comedic relief has them in stiches.
Aubrey Logan loves music, loves performing and loves her fans. And it shows. “My relationship with the audience is the most fun I can legally have!” she says. Very few artists can concentrate so fully on the music and yet be so connected to the people who have come to hear her. And that connection is magic.
Aubrey has seen a lot of recent success. Her debut album, Impossible, immediately shot to the top 10 on the iTunes, Billboard and Amazon charts. And her next appearance on Summer Horns II, from A to Z (as a special guest of Dave Koz on Concord Records) became the #1 selling Contemporary Jazz Album. Aubrey has spent more time at the top of the charts lately than she has in an airport, and travel has been a permanent fixture for her in the last couple of years.
Aubrey Logan has performed more than 250 shows since 2016. Besides countless dates touring as a guest star with Postmodern Jukebox and another nationwide tour with Dave Koz and his all-star lineup, Aubrey has been selling out her own shows in venues all over the US and Europe.
First coming to international attention after winning BOTH the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival Jury and Audience-Choice awards, Aubrey has gone on to perform with Pharrell Williams, Seth McFarlane, Meghan Trainor, Josh Groban, Gerald Albright, Haley Reinhart, and countless other legends. Her appearances on Jimmy Kimmel and The Grammy Awards and a PBS special and London Live have kept her in the public eye and millions of fans have watched her head-spinning videos on YouTube and Facebook. It seems like everywhere you turn, you’re bumping into Aubrey Logan.
Support: Matthew Read Trio
Matthew Read (Bass)
Arthur Newell (Drums)
Benedict Wood (Guitar)
The Matthew Read Trio (MRT) features Matthew Read on double bass, Benedict Wood on guitar and Arthur Newell on drums. Formed in 2015, the trio brings together three like-minded approaches to music making, creating an exciting new performance every time they play. Drawing influence from the bands of Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Paul Motian and many more, MRT brings a fresh edge to the world of the guitar trio.
Following hot on the heels of 2018 release Anecdotes, Vol 2, the trio return with a new collection of music written in preparation for Anecdotes, Vol 3.
“I have always written with a story, person or imagined scenario in mind - this collection of music is no different. Whether an anthem for the clueless Brit abroad, a piece about the inactivity caused by the Guardian’s weekend Sudoku or an ode to Arthur’s firmly-held belief that Wayne Shorter transforms in to a Raven, this music takes our life experience and puts it out there for our audiences.” - Matthew Read.
Featuring twenty four performances, the tour promises to be a strong return to form for a trio who launched their last album with twenty dates across the UK. “We have grown as a band by playing together at every possible opportunity. Our favourite groups have always been ones whose memberships rarely (if ever) changed. We want to be known as a unit instead of three individuals and intend to do this by having a distinct sound.”
“Now in our fifth year playing together, the trio has really started to take the shape that we saw it taking when we started. Getting on stage and playing together is easier than falling off a log. I feel so extremely lucky to have these two musicians to play with – they feel like an extension of myself.”
“This is definitely a trio on which to keep a sharp eye” - Roger Farbey, allaboutjazz.com
“Lean yet supple, song-like melody is the chief feature here, set in service of a mature, diversely inflected quality of story telling” – Michael Tucker, Jazz Journal
“Proof indeed that the British Jazz scene at the moment is in incredible form” – Chris Philips, Jazz FM
