Soulman, Leigh Coleman, who's worked with the legendary soul diva Betty Wright in the States, and our own Joss Stone, brings a soulful jazzy vibe to Matt Carter's exciting piano combo. He's simply one of the finest soul singers around. You're guaranteed a finger snapping evening of soul-driven jazz you won't forget.

Leigh Coleman is developing a national reputation for combining both jazz and funk in a style reminiscent of Stevie Wonder, Gregory Porter and George Benson. He's played alongside Joss Stone, Beverley Knight and Sandie Shaw as well as at Ronnie Scott's.

His voice evoked a quote I'll borrow from a lifelong friend, Lionel Richie, "Easy Like Sunday Morning". He is a Soul Man.....that Coleman" - Betty Wright

"He's entirely captivating, magical and puts a unique and modern twist on classic soul-driven, hook-laden acoustic grooves" - Acoustic Magazine

Matt Carter is a prodigious and versatile young pianist who brings dynamism and drive to jazz standards, soul and blues. Already a twenty-something bandleader in his own right, Matt's developing a national reputation for his Matt Carter Trio. Combined with Leigh on vocals, this remarkably strong bill will deliver soulful jazz classics, from swing to ballads, all night long.
