This transatlantic duo delivers a dynamic, entertaining and intimate interpretation of beautiful songs. Sophie Bancroft’s voice and effortless guitar is gorgeous over Tom Lyne’s virtuoso bass. Alongside Bancroft’s original contemporary jazz-based songs, the duo selects an eclectic repertoire ranging from classic jazz to the likes of Robbie Burns, Erykah Badu and Dolly Parton.
Their captivating storytelling through song choice and musicality is enhanced by moments of Bancroft’s spoken word poetry. Echoes of Sia, Rickie Lee Jones and Peggy Lee spring to mind.DSC_6587 PScrop2
Recent performance highlights include the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in New York where they were heralded as a “must see” act. Little wonder multi-award winning jazz vocalist Liane Carroll recorded Bancroft’s ballad, Calgary Bay, with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
