Grammy nominee Lisa Simone, only child of Nina Simone, is touring her latest album in Europe and will take up a three-day residency at Boisdale in Canary Wharf from January 19, 2016 – her only UK dates on her tour for her new album, out March 5.
Lisa has continued to blaze a trail from New York’s Carnegie and Town Halls and Australia’s Sydney Opera House alongside Dianne Reeves, Angelique Kidjo, Odetta, and Tracy Chapman, and has headlined worldwide jazz festivals in Telluride CO, Montreaux, North Sea and Paris.
She topped the jazz charts with her Big Band tribute album to her mother, entitled Simone On Simone. Currently Lisa is supporting her album All Is Well and was recently a featured guest on France’s Michel Drucker show. She will be recording a sophomore Nina Simone Tribute Album with the Tromso Big Band, live at The Edge in Tromso, Norway, this month.
