The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Hungary’s favourite jazz singer-songwriter Veronika Harcsa and guitar virtuoso Bálint Gyémánt have been working together since their studies at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. After having recorded several successful albums in various setups, they decided to continue in a minimalist duo setting.

Since their first duo album Lifelover was released in 2014 by the Berlin-based jazz label Traumton to critical acclaim, their music got exposed to the international audience, and the two musicians became part of the European jazz scene.

At their concert they will present songs from Tell Her, their 2017 release. The new songs are based on Veronika's musical and lyrical ideas, co-arranged by Bálint and produced by the New York born music producer Jeremy Friedman.

The duo's music is a delicate and tasteful mixture of contemporary jazz and improvised pop music, full of depth, inspiration and humour.
