Helena is a Jazz vocalist and piano player who has turned to soul and pop music in a unique way.
Helena can either play solo accompanying herself on piano or play with her duo with an added Jazz guitarist. Her repetoire ranges from classic 1930s Jazz (Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday) to 1960's Pop/Soul (Carole King, Aretha Franklin). She also plays live lounge style versions of more recent chart songs (The Killers, George Ezra, Caro Emerald).
Helena (along with Guitarist Tony) are both musicians of the highest calibre and are the perfect backdrop to set an elegant mood at any event. The duo are ideal for ceremonies, drinks receptions and wedding breakfasts.
Helena has risen up through the Jazz scene in the North West of England and has played in bands for many years. In more recent times she has created her own versions of classic soul and pop songs.
Helena has both a warm soft tone for ballads and a gritty soulful voice for more up tempo numbers. Her voice was featured in the 2005 film 'The KingMaker', ITV's 'The Royal' in 2006 and will also feature in the star studded 2015 film 'The Youth' starring Michael Caine and Harvey Keitel.

Helena was absolutely fantastic. Our guests were unaware that we had hired a singer and they were stunned by Helena's performance. Unfortunately my wife & I didn't get to hear as much of her as we would have liked but we asked if she would sing our first dance song (despite it not being in her advertised repertoire) which she did beautifully and really made our night special. We cannot recommend Helena highly enough, not only is she a fantastic singer but she is a truly lovely person and answered all our (many!) queries before the booking. Trying to think of a reason to have a party and book Helena again soon!
