Kerry Le Bern
Kerry Le Bern is a jazz and vintage singer from West Sussex. Kerry performs as a solo artist or with her saxophonist as a jazz duo throughout Hampshire, Sussex, Surrey and the South East. Whether you are booking Kerry for your wedding, birthday party or corporate event, Kerry’s entertainment is sure to be memorable.
Kerry has a sultry jazz style, with a smoky sensual voice which has been likened to that of Diana Krall. Her main influences are the great jazz divas of their time: Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee and Julie London. However Kerry also relishes re-creating the vintage sounds of Doris Day, Patsy Cline, Brenda Lee and Connie Francis.
To introduce a more contemporary vibe to her repertoire, Kerry covers the music of jazz/popular artistes such as Madeleine Peyroux, Caro Emerald and Imelda May. As a unique offering, Kerry can bring a touch of the ‘femme chanteuse’ to your wedding, party or corporate event with her inspiring French jazz set. Combining her love of the French language with her love of the jazz genre means that Kerry will treat you and your guests to something rather special for your event.
A recent client enthused… (Kerry’s) ‘blend of classic nostalgia and contemporary music from artists like Caro Emerald, upbeat and mellow, all delivered with Kerry’s engaging personality ensures a very special ambiance.’
Kerry’s background is steeped in musical theatre having played principal roles in many musicals such as Carousel, Return to the Forbidden Planet, The Pirates of Penzance and Calamity Jane, to name but a few. This musical theatre background has a clear influence in Kerry’s repertoire today as many of the jazz standards which she sings were originally written for musicals, in addition to which Kerry also likes to delight her audiences by peppering her repertoire with some of those brilliant and well-known musical numbers such as ‘Hello Dolly’ and ‘Caberet’.
Since launching her own jazz career Kerry has performed at venues and events across the length and breadth of the UK as well as further afield in Europe and now she has been invited to perform at Emsworth Slipper's French Cabaret Evening on Saturday 11th November.
