The UK’s hottest jazz sensation are thrilled to launch their debut album Vintage Dirtbag, featuring the best in contemporary hits uniquely transformed into jazz standards for the modern age.
The spectacular Miss Kiddy and the Cads were launched in 2016 by session singer Abi Gilchrist who may be better known for singing the theme tune to CBeebies’ show Do You Know? Performing to a sell-out crowd at their first gig in London’s Pheasantry Jazz Club. Currently making waves across the jazz scene, it’s been a rapid rise for the sextet, which has led to them performing on ITV’s This Morning and Loose Women. With show-stopping vocals, authentic costumes, a stunning tap dancer and full 1940s decadence, Miss Kiddy and the Cads really are a talent that are hard to follow.
Creator Abi Gilchrist says: ‘We are so proud of the album we have created. We like to think of ourselves not just as a band, but as a wholly immersive experience that crosses over into jazz, cabaret, comedy and vintage. I am also very lucky to work with such a talented group of people. Ben (Cummings) our trumpet player also plays in Caro Emerald’s band, our drummer Andy (Jones) is a music producer who produced the latest Squeeze album and our MD and pianist / song -arranger Ross (Power) is an award-winning composer and producer for TV and film. We also have The Undertaker on bass Eric (Guy) and Lil’ Missy our famous tap dancer, Leah (Wise)’.
