Josephine Arthur is a West London-based Jazz singer. She started in musical theatre 18 years ago and fell in love with all the old tunes from the 1920’s onwards. Her main influences are Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Nina Simone, and she is continually inspired by modern singers such as Norah Jones. Her voice is warm and sweet and has been described as “like bathing in chocolate”. She sings a mixture of jazz and modern standards, with swing, latin and funk rhythms.
