Judy Shire is a local Northampton Singer who performs at public, corporate, private and wedding events mainly on an International level outside the UK. However when she is home in the UK she is available for local gigs. She also has a great website Both Judy and her Management are very supportive of other Jazz singers and Musicians and can  offer  free  links  and  listings on her
website. It it well worth having a link on Judy's site as she is unavailable to do the many of the gigs she is offered, so by being on her site you may pick up on some unexpected work. It is also a great way to raise your public profile as Judy's site has thousands of hits most weeks. For a listing get in touch with her manager John Shires by email at or go to her website and email him from there.

Professional Musician Martin Simons
Tenor and soprano sax. Flute, clarinet, harmonica
With over 40 years of experience
A multi Instrumentalist, playing tenor and soprano saxophones, clarinet and flute. I am also a well known jazz Harmonica player and was at one time, much in demand for session work.
I play all styles, Latin mainstream, traditional, etc.
I mainly work with keyboard player, Maurice Merry, but am available one my own if required. Maurice is no stranger to the musical world
and was musical director to the late Gene Pitney for over 35 years, so combined with his “show biz” background, we can probably “sell” a song more effectively than most other duos.

Rachael Johnson

Rachael Johnson is a Jazz pianist from Kettering, Northants. She has studied Music since the age of 6, completing all the classical grades with ABRSM (performance in Guitar and Piano, as well as Musical Theory Grades), she also took part in big bands and group ensembles throughout secondary school. Rachael was then introduced and became passionate about Jazz, she pursued the subject of Jazz piano at Middlesex University in London and was taught by some of London's top Jazz pianists including Gareth Williams and Nikki Iles.
After a year of studying at Middlesex, she thought that that particular course did not focus enough on her instrument and did not encourage personal style, whilst continuing Jazz Improv tuition with Gareth and Nikki, Rachael decided to study and become an associate of the London College Of Music (A.L.C.M), this was to be her first degree in which was entirely her own work.
After successfully completing this degree she continued working with her teachers in London and formed her own Quartet which included an abundance of well known British Jazz musicians. She also performed as a soloist in top London hotels on Park Lane, at many private functions and at renowned restaurants and cocktail bars throughout the UK.
Whilst building her repertoire and valuable contacts, Rachael was given (by her own merit) the next degree exam free of charge by the Chief examiner who was also her examiner from her previous degree. She took this opportunity and received another degree making her a Licentiate (L.L.C.M), which again was self taught.
After completing all her exams, Rachael  became a private teacher and also took part in workshops which were organised by the London College Of Music in which she was involved in helping qualified teachers who were struggling with the college's Jazz syllabus and how to teach the syllabus to their own students.
Rachael then ventured to Melbourne, Australia where she lived and worked for 6 months as a gigging musician and Jazz teacher. While she was there she played in five or the very well known Jazz clubs including Dizzys and Uptown Jazz cafe.
Her band ranges from a duo to a septet and performs her own compositions, as well as Jazz standards. She is also a private teacher and freelance solo Pianist.
