GEORGIA CÉCILE, one of jazz's hotly-tipped prospects, will play a headline show in Edinburgh next month in support of her debut album.

The Scottish singer and songwriter unveiled Only The Lover Sings on September 17,

She had been dubbed One To Watch by BBC Introducing and Jazzwise Magazine and was crowned Best Vocalist at the 2019 Scottish Jazz Awards.

Cécile's debut LP features ten original songs co-written and arranged with long-term collaborator Euan Stevenson – a duo described by Jamie Cullum as a "songwriting pair to watch out for".

The songs bear the fruits of that decade-long songwriting partnership as the pair draw inspiration from the likes of Burt Bacharach, John Barry and Marvin Hamlisch.

Supported by Creative Scotland, the album was recorded throughout 2020 at GloWorm Recordings in Glasgow, engineered, co-produced and mixed by Iain Hutchison.

Featuring top UK session players such as violinist Seonaid Aitken and trumpeter Ryan Quigley, the album has a timeless, cinematic quality, fusing classic jazz and soul influences as diverse as Duke Ellington, Nancy Wilson and Stevie Wonder with a contemporary edge in the vein of Gregory Porter, Norah Jones and Melody Gardot.

The album follows the singles He Knew How To Love and Always Be Right.

An official album launch concert will be held at Edinburgh Queen's Hall on October 16 and will feature Cécile's eleven-piece ensemble, including live strings and horn section.
