  • Anita Wardell- Jazz Vocalist
    When I first heard Elaine, I was struck by her swinging sound and instrumental approach to improvising. Wonderful choice of material and great stage presence. Musicians love her!
  • Events Manager: Edita Milaseviciute @ The Coffee House Aberdeen
    We would like to thank Elaine Crighton for the professionalism, skill, fun attitude and great tunes she brings to The Coffee House! Elaine’s vocal abilities are impressive and her repertoire is very wide: from Jazz standards, to more bluesy songs, swing or Latin or faster bebop, but her performance is always very light, she sets a very happy mood. We highly recommend Elaine Crighton and her band for any style of event
  • Steve Crocker, organiser JazzLeeds
    Elaine performed at our Inkwell Divas jazz series in Chapel Allerton Leeds last year. We think Elaine is one of Scotland’s treasures – and a true up and coming jazz vocalist.
