REBECCA POOLE @ 606 Club
An outstanding singer, Rebecca Poole (formerly known as Purdy) simply oozes charisma, which combined with her sultry style and surefooted vocal delivery makes her truly impressive. With influences ranging from Nina Simone and Peggy Lee to Julie London, Nancy Sinatra and Henry Mancini, Rebecca’s own songs have a vintage flair refreshed by a thoroughly modern attitude. Her 2015 album “Diamond in the Dust” affirmed her as a significant solo artist, and was followed by a tour supporting Jools Holland as well as performances at Wembley Stadium and The Royal Albert Hall. Her second record “Both Sides of a Clown” released here at the 606, wowing the audience yet again with her self-penned pop/jazz-influenced originals, and led to a singing part in the popular Netflix Series ‘The Crown’. This show will mark the launch of Rebecca’s latest album, ‘Dreamer’s Ball’, produced by Grammy-nominated producer James McMillan (Liane Carroll). Her band features Dom Stockbridge-guitar, Mark Edwards-piano, Loz Garratt-bass & Chris Higginbottom-drums.
“Purdy is a consummate artist, old soul, young heart, witty and alluring. A musical feast of emotions” Time Out; “Great character, unique voice, a true artist” Alan McGee, Creation Records; “Purdy will lead you by the hand in to her stories with deep velvet vocals, at times playfully and then soulfully through the highs and lows. You won’t want to say goodnight” Nick Dent Robinson
