Once again The Heart Of Lincolnshire club introduces a new name to the area, singer songwriter Jezz Hall.
Born in Cambridge Jezz Hall moved to Nottingham in the 80's and began playing guitar in local bands. After a time he realised that his voice was particularly suited for a solo acoustic approach, he began developing this and his songwriting at a grass roots level in local folk and acoustic clubs.
Whilst he is foremost a songwriter, his live set includes traditional material from Britain and America, and perhaps the odd cover to suit audiences.
Jezz was featured in Froots magazine in the article 'Class Of 2001' in which a number of younger established musicians from the UK folk scene were asked to put forward names of who they felt should have more attention. It was singer / songwriter Pete Morton who mention Jezz.
Apart from his solo shows, Jezz has worked with Trickster (formerly members of celtic punksters Seven Little Sisters).
His debut CD Smalltown won critical acclaim last year, "impressive poetic maturity and first class musicianship" (City Lights Magazine).
Having had a couple of BBC Radio appearances under his belt and write up's in FRoots magazine, "What perhaps marks him out as an exceptional songwriter is his vivid lyricism" (Colin Irwin ~ FRoots), Jezz is really getting noticed for being an outstanding performer. Supporting Pete Morton, Thea Gilmore and Mary Gauthier has introduced his music to new audiences.
