Gregg Arthur is an Australian singer who has performed internationally, and is critically praised by both the press and his peers.
“…the finest male jazz singer Australia has produced since Vince Jones – Eric Myers. The Weekend Australian.

Alma Zygier has been fascinated by the pre war era of Jazz; the singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Memphis Minnie, & the Broadway composers who largely provided the repertoire, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers. She has a voice from another era & brings an emotional maturity to her performance that belies her years.
Inspired by the great jazz and big band singers, Paige Delancey is an accomplished Sydney vocalist specialising in Jazz, Blues and Soul. Paige has played with some of Australia’s finest musicians including: Col Nolan (Galapagos Duck), triple ARIA Award winners Monsieur Camembert, Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire), Tim Rollinson (d.i.g.), Calvin Welch (Arabesk), Ian Date (guitar), James Valentine and The Vegetable Plot!
Kate Wadey is quickly becoming a voice in Australian jazz to be reckoned with. Wadey sings standards selected for their particularly fine character with a sweet, sure and rich voice.
