Flo Blue

Flo Blue is a London-based saxophonist, singer & songwriter blurring the lines between jazz, pop & soul. Flo grew up listening to songwriters such as Eva Cassidy & Norah Jones but later developed a strong interest in jazz and went on to study this at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. She combines her passions for storytelling and rich jazz harmony to create unique compositions that feature her saxophone and voice. Her current influences span across a mixture of pop & jazz artists including Lianne La Havas, Joni Mitchel, Braxton Cook, Brad Meldau and Celeste. 

Until now, Flo has been busy working as a session musician in various other projects, including playing in her own horn section ‘Komodo Horns,’ touring internationally with High on Heels & has had several Winter residencies playing with DJ’s in the French Alps. However, she is currently working towards recording her debut EP in 2022.

Dominic J Marshall

Pianist, composer, vocalist, beatmaker, producer - ““He brings together a great heritage of the past, but also something very fresh and new." (Jamie Cullum) "Marshall plunges into the uncanny valley and frolics in it, inventing a fresh path for the genre with irreverent wit and divine grace." (Okayplayer)

"He's what you would call a piano virtuoso" (Jamz Supernova - BBC Radio 1Xtra) Marshall's 2013 album Spirit Speech - ‘an excellent, imaginative and distinctive album that repays repeated listens’ (LondonJazzNews) led him to be unanimously selected by Jamie Cullum, Gilles Peterson and Jez Nelson to perform at BBC Introduces, Manchester Jazz Festival that year.

In 2015 Dominic became the pianist for British nu-jazz group The Cinematic Orchestra, with whom he has performed all over the world including at Montreux Jazz Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Tokyo SummerSonic, Brixton Academy and LA’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.
