“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!”

Elaine Crighton Vocalist

Elaine Crighton Vocalist Aberdeen Scotland – 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. She has charisma and flair but she has also travelled to study the art of jazz singing with some of the UK’s top singers and educators and taken the jazz course at St Andrews – and it shows in her singing style – she can improvise and scat with a passion!”

Elaine Crighton VocalistWe would like to thank Elaine Crighton for the professionalism, skill, fun attitude and great tunes she brings to The Coffee House! We often invite Elaine Crighton Jazz Quartet to play on Saturday evenings, as we can always count on Elaine’s talent to impress our guests. She always comes with fantastic musicians and the evenings are always full of surprises. Elaine adds some ‘spices’ to every performance: new accents, change of instruments, unexpected guests, always some new songs, new variations, even new languages! 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.

“It was a rather pleasing evening in many ways at Whighams last night – Elaine Crighton and her band of merry men gave us two great sets of songs, largely from the bebop era which was terrific. All of this made even more so by inclusion of the ever brilliant John Burgess and the interesting and very tasty arrangements which Elaine had clearly worked hard on as a dedicated jazz student, thus proving that returning to academia armed with well earned knowledge of your subject can be both rewarding and a recipe for success – well done Elaine!”
