The West Country’s ‘Jazzeoke Queen’, Totnes-based Becky Brine will be remembered with affection by Birmingham patrons for her solo street entertainment throughout the last three festivals. Becky is equally at home in more sophisticated settings than the streets of Birmingham and returns to the City with her own quartet. A singer whom it is difficult to label, Becky names as singers she admires Madeleine Peyroux, K.T. Tunstall, Janis Joplin and Nina Simone as well as the obvious Ella and Billie. With her background in music theatre – including Little Shop of Horrors and Godspell at Bristol Old Vic – Becky is a consummate performer as well as a fine singer.
