Following the release of her long awaited debut album 'Diamond in the Dust', 2016 saw Purdy support Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra on his UK Tour - including appearances at the Royal Albert Hall, which gave rise to sensational reviews.
As a singer/songwriter, Purdy creates alongside grammy award winning producer Andy Wright, famed for his records with Imelda May, Chrissie Hynde, Simple Minds and Simply Red.
Often referred to as 'pop noir' Purdy’s distinctive sultry stylings and songwriting skills have led to collaborations with Jamiroquai’s Matt Johnson and Ian Barter (Amy Winehouse). Purdy's latest singles have been championed by Radio 2, BBC 6 music and BBC London.
Combining her own unique style with nuances of Nina Simone, Nancy Sinatra, Peggy Lee and Henry Mancini, Purdy offers playful swagger with hugely entertaining onstage appeal.
With her popularity continuing to grow, Purdy has performed to 90,000 people at Wembley, guested on The Royal Variety Show, performed with Jamie Cullum at BBC Radio 2's Cheltenham Festival, played packed houses at London’s premier venues, Formula 1 events and The London Lifestyle Awards. Only recently Purdy also performed as a guest singer on Richard Branson’s Necker Island opening for Lana Del Rey.
