|Naomi Payne - Jazz, Blues,
|Naomiís musical talent and extraordinary
voice were first recognised when she was just a young teenager. This was
hardly surprising given the way in which her parents had immersed her in the
music of Bessie Smith, Leadbelly, Robert Johnson and other blues Greats and
it was only natural that she should move onto listening to such jazz Divas
as Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.
Naomiís desire to entertain led her to sing with a number of different bands
on the jazz and blues circuit in her early twenties, and she was chosen to
sing live on BBC Radio Shropshire in 1996.
Despite taking a short break to marry and have children Naomi inevitably
returned to her singing career three years ago and immediately found herself
in great demand at a variety of society functions, including weddings,
fashion shows, vintage themed dances/parties (playing popular music from the
1900s - 1940s) and the 2009 and 2010 Ludlow Food Festival.
Currently Naomi provides a stunning front for a sixteen piece show band as
well as mesmerising the audience with her more intimate Naomi Payne Quartet
which plays jazz, blues, classic and Latin numbers. Together these two allow
her to give full range to her magnificent voice, equally comfortable
delivering the husky blues classics as the show stopping Broadway hits.
