London based pianist, singer and composer Joy Ellis has toured all over the world playing jazz.
This season, see her here in Clapham performing original material from her 2017 album ‘Life on Land’. The album is inspired, in part, by her experiences of living back in London after a five year hiatus, and the street art in her local neighbourhood. It reflects her passion for jazz and improvisation, her love of groove and dance music, her classical roots as a pianist and the soulful, poetic aspects of being a singer-songwriter.
Joy Ellis’ gig highlights include Ronnie Scott’s and the Barbican Pit Theatre in London, the London Jazz Festival, the Cork Jazz Festival and No Black Tie Jazz Club in Kuala Lumpur. She was recently selected as one of fourteen emerging artists to work with Mercury-nominated singer ESKA on a composition residency in Manchester.
