Welcome to Sunday Hot Club
Kelsey James takes out our mini-series of Melbourne vocalists to our utter delight!!
Volume 2 in Sunday Hot Club’s Melbourne Singers Series, we feature Kelsey amongst the sterling company of Swing Dynamique.
Apart from being the first Australian to have composed music for Sesame Street, vocally, she has explored traditional and popular jazz, gypsy swing, punk rock, indie pop and ensemble singing. Her live performances are spontaneous, sensitive, and passionate. She has performed in venues across Melbourne and around Australia, including White Night, The Famous Spiegeltent, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, MONA, and OzManouche Jazz Festival.
Swing Dynamique was set up by the great Ewan MacKenzie as a vehicle for his original compositions in the Jazz Manouche style. His melodies are now presented by Miranda Deutsch on Guitar, Dan Cosgrove on Clarinet, Jan Van Dijk on Violin, Rick Caskey on Bass and Alex Crighton on Rhythm Guitar.
