NYJO alumna Amy Winehouse is undoubtably one of the greatest musical talents to come out of the UK. Her unmistakable character, vocal dexterity and masterful songwriting made her a pop icon. Her tragic passing makes her one of the most sorely missed artists in recent memory. Now, ten years on, her music still shines, undiminished, in all its defiant brilliance. This concert series celebrates Amy’s enduring legacy, reimagining hits and revisiting early works she sang with the 24-piece National Youth Jazz Orchestra as a promising 16-year-old singer, back in 2000. NYJO aims to honour her life, and her work, with a performance that fans of big band jazz, and Amy obsessives will enjoy.

 

Musical Director - Winston Rollins

A past-member of NYJO, Winston has most recently held the position as Deputy Music Director. His background is steeped in music having been in bands such as The Brand New Heavies, Incognito, Aswad, Jamiroquai, Courtney Pine. Currently he is a member of Jool Holland’s Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, since 1994 he has been one of four trombonists in the Brass section of the Orchestra.He has his own studio, RedRoom Studios, in Chiswick, West London, and has produced albums himself. His talents extend thus as a musician (trombonist firstly but also keyboards and bass), songwriter, producer, arranger not to mention a unique personality and presence on stage.

Lead Arranger - Olivia Murphy 

Olivia Murphy is an award-winning composer, saxophonist, and improviser based in Birmingham, U.K. It was her passion for large ensemble jazz that led her to become the first and only two-time winner of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Jazz Composition and Arranging Prize, winning in 2018 and 2019 respectively. After graduating from RBC, Olivia became NYJO’s composer chair in January 2020.

Lead Vocalist - Lucy-Ann Daniels

Lucy-Anne Daniels is a natural performer, practiced vocalist and creative improviser hailing from Leeds, whose vocal sound draws inspiration from singers such as Betty Carter, gospel duo Mary Mary and Amy Winehouse. Having been raised in a musical household, Lucy-Anne found herself in the world of performance at a young age, often singing in church and at local events in her hometown. At the tender age of sixteen, Lucy-Anne became the vocal chair holder for NYJO, in December 2019 and has since established herself as an emerging artist on the Birmingham jazz scene in her own right.
