A year on from touring with Jools Holland, Purdy has built her own record label from which she will release her double A-side limited edition vinyl on 30th September and all other formats early November. She is literally popping-up around the country to give live music lovers (to quote Craig Charles of BBC Radio 4) a taste of her “so slinky it shouldn’t be allowed” sound.
Purdy has now performed at Wembley stadium in front of a crowd of 90,000, supported Jools Holland on tour including the Royal Albert Hall, sung alongside Jamie Cullum at Cheltenham Jazz Festival, supported Lana Del Ray at a concert on Necker Island and recently presented and performed at the West London Music Festival alongside Mica Paris.
Critics such as Time Out have described her as “a consummate artist, old soul, young heart, witty and alluring. A musical feast of emotions”. Her track “Dream in Colour” from her album “Diamond in the Dust received almost 200,000 plays on Spotify with zero marketing budget.
With influences such as Julie London, Peggy Lee and Nancy Sinatra, Purdy is busy penning her second album as well as touring across the UK in small, intimate venues to take fans into her world with this speakeasy vibe. This all started due to a hugely well received launch night behind a little secret door in Henley on Thames where Purdy will be returning every first Saturday of the month with special guests from the cream of the Jazz, Blues and Crossover music world!
Purdy grew up on the Nettlebed Estate near Henley where her Dad was farmer to the Fleming Family. The stately home that once housed Ian Fleming and his family is now owned by the Sue Ryder Foundation and Purdy recently sang to the patients of the hospice which spurred her on to become more involved with her home community and so decided to set up a pop-up club of her own in neighbouring Henley-on-Thames. Her desire was to echo the fun and nostalgia of the old Jazz club that once buzzed in the Market Square. The feedback was so fantastic, Purdy has decided to make it a regular event.
You can listen to her yet unreleased TOO IN LOVE WITH LOVE double a-side here. Pre-orders are now available and will be shipped at the end of September for it’s official release.
