London based jazz singer/songwriter, Catherine Lima, has been delighting her audiences on the jazz circuit for over a decade. A charismatic and entertaining performer, she has a warm expressive tone which she uses expertly to create moods from sultry to joyous drawing on influences such as Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee, Joni Mitchell, Patricia Barber and Barbra Streisand. With her new album, Stories and Lies, released on 1stSeptember 2017, she explores her personal take on the narrative behind the lyrics of songs. Catherine has written four songs for this album, two of which are based on characters from classic novels and with a mix of swing, soulful ballads and latin rhythms, she tells a story with every song. Tonight she will be performing with a fabulous trio - Paul Higgs on piano, Marek Dorcik on drums and Casper Hoedemaekers on bass.
“…a voice which is like listening to honey, so rich but smooth with a unique texture which is so enticing. This is the first time that I have heard her as a songwriter. Her efforts show all the signs of a fabulous career ahead.” Tony Andrews for Audiophile News
