Fleur Stevenson's honeyed tone, offbeat sense of humour and naturally charismatic stage presence create an instant rapport with an audience and she has an unerring instinct for choosing the right material to showcase her talent. She has honed a unique style with her surprising yet stylish interpretations of jazz standards and her tender, heartfelt delivery of romantic ballads whilst giving more than a nod to the influences of the great jazz singers from whom she’s drawn much of her musical inspiration.
