LIVE at Pizza Express Dean St, London
Symeon Cosburn has been no stranger to the London stage over the last couple of years and has performed his unique jazz-influenced songs at some of the most prestigious venues. On Sunday, February 11th he brings his new show to The Pizza Express Jazz Club, Dean Street London.
His debut album “Breakfast With The Blues” has received rave reviews from the press and public and features several of his own compositions including the duet “Twilight Time” which he persuaded The Communards’ Sarah Jane Morris to sing with him!
“I’ve always loved music and I have been singing for most of my life. I started writing my own material around 1997, mainly pop songs, but it wasn’t until 2000 when I was performing in Europe that I started to alter the style of the songs that I wrote, into the style of songs that I really enjoyed listening to – jazz, funk and swing. I can’t believe that the public are voting for me by actually parting with money to help my career, I’m so very grateful” Symeon Cosburn
Symeon has already had considerable radio success with the album and his reworking of The Stranglers’ “Golden Brown” has been playlisted on several UK radio stations, the success of which prompted a dance remix by The Groove Foundry which is now doing the rounds in dance clubs on a white label disc.
To record his album Symeon turned to the highly esteemed vocalist and producer Ian Shaw. With Shaw they added guest appearances by bassist Simon Little (Divine Comedy), pianist Janette Mason (Oasis, Lea DeLaria) and some of the UK’s finest musicians whose involvement only go to underline the respect that Symeon is attracting as a singer and entertainer.
In 2002 he was asked to write the musical score for a play called “Who’s Harry” that premiered at the Edinburgh Festival, won the “Festival First Award” and transferred to London.
Recently Symeon has been on tour in Spain where he has also been writing material for his second album which he is hoping to produce later in 2007.
