15th February 2020:

Sheena Edwards is an aspiring jazz vocalist, who began singing at the age of four. She began her journey singing gospel, later transitioning to secular music, mostly soul and pop. Her love of singing was greatly encouraged by her father, who was also a singer and guitarist. Sheena regularly performs in a trio with her father and sister . Sheena participated in music festivals and performed regularly in hotels in her native homeland, Antigua. She also travelled extensively throughout the Caribbean and to the USA,  performing in musical theatre.

Over years, Sheena’s passion for jazz, heavily influenced by the likes of Sarah Vaughn and Rachelle Ferrell, has prevailed. Consequently, she enrolled in the Richmond Jazz school and has since been on an incredible musical journey, which has given her the opportunity to play at established venues, including; The Bull’s Head,  Momentum & Jazz Café Posk,
