"Terrific pianist and assured singer" (The Guardian) Wendy Kirkland's quartet’s repertoire of jazz standards and original tunes mix jazz styles - incorporating swing, Latin, funk and soul. 

 Zestful and swinging, her vocals are a refreshing tribute to Jazz Divas such as Diana Krall, Blossom Dearie and Nina Simone with piano influences from Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Eliane Elias. Wendy and Pat are regulars at internationally renowned Ronnie Scott’s Club, London.
