An evening of melodies and beautiful vocals, brought to you by two very special artists: Natalie Taylor Gray contemporary singer/songwriter- pop/soul singer that bleeds with honesty and passion and Adriana Blu, who's colourful and sensual voice has always captivated audiences from Spain and the UK.

Adriana Blu

Adriana Blu started her music career in Spain when she was just sixteen. From music competitions, having won the Young Promise of the music award 2007 in Santander she quickly jumped to live stages singing jazz standards with some of the best musicians from North Spain and Cuba.

She became lead singer of the Santander Jazz Big Band and took part as lead singer and dancer in the musical "Jazzmovie" with Orlando Peláez, one of the best dancers and choreographers in Spain.

In 2012 she created her own band Adriana Blu & The Sugars with cuban, venezuelan and flamenco musicians and together they recorded two albums.

They opened the show in the legendary Festival Segovia where artists like Chano Dominguez or Martirio were performing as well. 

Influenced by SADE, Celia Cruz and Ella Fitzgerald she brings the latin warmth touch and creates a unique and spiritual performance to see. Recently having recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios with some of the best musicians of London, Adriana is becoming an acclaimed performer in the jazz and latin live music circle of London. 

Natalie Taylor Gray

AKA NTG is one of the next generation’s most talented singer-songwriters, recording seductively contemporary pop/soul music that bleeds with honesty and passion. Taking influence from iconic vocalists like Amy Winehouse and Ella Fitzgerald while drawing inspiration from the electro-pop of Lady Gaga, NTG has developed a bold and sensuous aesthetic that takes cues from pop, soul and R&B while remaining true to her unique sound and spirit: she calls it “Music for the broken-hearted”.

Growing up in North London, Gray’s outlook was shaped by the bubbling, ecstatic sounds of ‘90s pop and musical theatre, gifting her a melodic sensibility and dynamism that can be heard in every note of the neon-lit electro-pop soul she now records under her own name. Drawing from a deeply held desire to “empower those who can escape through music”, this exceptionally talented artist performed in girl groups and theatre shows before choosing to pursue a long-held dream to carve out a career as a solo artist.
