TRUDY KERR has been hailed as ‘one of the country's most polished singers’ by The Times. Trudy moved to London in 1990 from her native Australia and, whilst continuing to gig regularly, as she had done back home, she worked during the day as secretary for the popular clarinettist Acker Bilk. She took time out to study jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and in 1995 got her musical career break when Ronnie Scott offered her a week at his club: she has performed regularly at the famous Soho jazzerie ever since.
Trudy has released 10 albums to date, and has performed and toured extensively at clubs and festivals around the world. She has performed and recorded with Acker Bilk, Georgie Fame, Jamie Cullum, Mulgrew Miller, Jan Lundgren, Bob Dorough and Michael Garrick to name a few.
Trudy also co-presents the Jazz hour on BBC Radio Across the South every Tuesday night at 9pm with Roger Day where she plays the latest UK releases as well as classic jazz recordings.
She is a sought after jazz singing teacher with her own private singing practice. She teaches annually on the JAZZ ACADEMY Summer, Easter and Winter courses and the Mediterranean Jazz School. As well she has recently been a guest tutor at Guildhall School of Music and Trinity Laban. Trudy also tours the UK with her popular kids show JAZZ FOR JUNIORS.
The music Trudy and her band perform range from the Great American Songbook with some Brazilian classics, as well as great pop songs from the last 5 decades.
