Southern Hemisphere Trio joins the London jazz scene

Award-winning vocalists Nicky Schrire and Anita Wardell

Award-winning vocalists Nicky Schrire and Anita Wardell

For the love of the southern hemisphere (and music), this trio is sure to make London jazz fans happy this February

Award-winning vocalists Anita Wardell and Nicky Schrire met in 2007. Despite any geographical distance (Australian-raised Wardell was based in London, and Schrire was about to move from her native South Africa to New York) they developed a kinship and became fast friends. With a shared love for “straight tone” singing, the understated, and Southern Hemisphere roots, the two remained in touch over the past five years, when Schrire performed London and Wardell performed in the USA.

Schrire recently returned to live in London and the two singers are thrilled to find themselves on the same side of the pond. To celebrate this coming full circle, they have teamed up with pianist Robin Aspland (Kenny Wheeler, George Coleman, Georgie Fame) to form “The Southern Hemisphere Trio” (Aspland has spent time in both Australia and South Africa making him an honorary Southern Hemisphere-ian). The trio will explore songs from jazz and folk traditions in this intimate formation, celebrating seven years of musical friendship.

“Anita Wardell is a singer who takes no prisoners. The Australian vocalist is an uncompromising exponent of bebop and has won a cult following among her colleagues in London during her time here.”
-Clive Davis, The Times
“… Schrire becomes part of the fabric of her music. Her voice is a warm and supple instrument that serves as a dispensary of emotional power.”
-Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
