Act Profile

SJ Jazz

SJ has been singing since the age of 5. She won a scholarship to the Guildford School of Performing Arts and left in 1982. She has, during her career enjoyed working with such names as Barbara Windsor, Norman Wisdom, Anita Harris and Bernard Bresslaw to name but a few. Her love of singing has taken her career to all points of the globe including Europe, the Caribbean and Japan.

Having worked extensively in musicals SJ has played Janet in the Rocky Horror Show, Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls, Janet in Salad Days, Dorothy Brock in 42nd Street, Bloody Mary in South Pacific, Ruth in the Pirates of Penzance and many many more. She also wrote and directed her own musical play which was performed in 2005 called Jazz Café which won huge critical acclaim.

SJ also loves pantomime having ‘slapped her thigh’ in various UK venues from Hereford to Southsea, the Isle of Man and in Surrey at the Epsom Playhouse where she played Principal Boy with Christopher Biggins as Buttons in the traditional family pantomime Cinderella.

There is now a change of direction in SJ’s music career focussing around her love of Jazz and Blues music. Having been influenced by Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion during her earlier career it is now the versatility of Diana Krall and Stacey Kent who are fast becoming the backbone of her repertoire together with her love of the Sax!

SJ can sing anything from Pop to Opera, Jazz to old time music hall. She can also sing in Spanish, French and even Japanese and so if you have a specific request for your booking please do not hesitate to ask her. The song list is certainly not the entirety of her repertoire but just to give you a taster!
