Louise Messenger is a Jazz/Contemporary vocalist originally from Australia but now based in London.
Louise loves all things swing. Her greatest influences are Carmen McRae, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day, Keely Smith and the Boswell Sisters. As well as classic standards, she is always seeking tunes that are a little left of centre, and loves to bring back to life songs from tin pan alley and the Great American Songbook that have been forgotten in the jazz canon.
"Louise Messenger is a superb performer: she's funny, energetic, sassy, talented, engaging and has a stunning voice."
