A familiar face on the London jazz scene, Fleur Stevenson is gifted with a honeyed tone, an offbeat sense of humour and a naturally charismatic stage presence. Fleur creates an instant rapport with her audience through sparkling narrative and an unerring instinct for choosing the right material to showcase her talent.
Her phrasing, use of space and improvisational ability nod to obvious influences from the greats such as Shirley Horn and Anita O’Day but Fleur is carving a niche all of her own with her surprising yet stylish interpretations of jazz standards and her tender, heartfelt delivery of romantic ballads.
Fleur's latest album (2022) with multi-instrumentalist Pete Billington, 'For All We Know', received much critical acclaim and is included in the prestigious Jazz Views Best Albums of the Year Award, and also featured as one of Jazz Fuel's Best 30 Jazz Releases of 2022. The album is playful and light-hearted yet with a frisson of melancholy, songs such as ‘I’ve Got You Under My skin', ‘When Sunny Gets Blue' and ‘Stella by Starlight'.
