Celebrated as “flawless, stylish and captivating”, Edana’s talent as a mainstream jazz vocalist has been widely recognised since the release of her debut album, Still on My Feet (2011). The album, dedicated to her late brother Anthony Minghella, featured special guests Guy Barker and Liane Carroll. Her second album, All or Nothing, a collection of songs from Billie Holiday’s repertoire, was released to wide acclaim in 2016. Described as “fantastic from start to end” by Alan Musson of Jazz Breakfast, this and Still on My Feet were both co-produced by the stellar duo Liane Carroll and award-winning music producer James McMillan. 

Performing at festivals and jazz clubs in the UK and Europe, Edana’s creative and spell-binding re-imagination of well-known songs is fast becoming Edana’s signature. Together with innovative arrangements, and world class musicians, her live shows are powerful and compelling. Often sold out, they showcase her great strengths: raw emotion, a natural story-telling ability, and the power to touch her audience deeply.

“’All or Nothing’ is fantastic from start to end.” - Alan Musson (Jazz Breakfast)
