Josh Kyle (UK) 8.00pm tonight at The Ellington

Relocating to the UK in 2009 Josh was quickly identified as one to watch. "Standing out in a town full of singers" is how Jazzwise magazine, London's premier jazz publication described him.
Gaining support from UK heavy weight Claire Martin, OBE, BBC Radio 3 presenter and jazz vocalist, Josh was quickly working with the best in town. A chance meeting with Bassist/Producer Geoff Gascoyne (Jamie Cullum) saw the beginning of a musical partnership that would see Josh release his Debut album "Possibilities" as a part of the London International Jazz Festival in 2011.
Having played Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express Jazz Club, 606 and The Spice of Life, Josh was able to create quite the buzz and build his career on an International level.
Josh returns to Australia in 2012 to release the album "Possibilities" touring nationally (The Paris Cat May 11, Stonnington Jazz Festival May 19, The Ellington Perth June 2, Venue 505 Sydney June 8, Darling Harbour Jazz Festival Sydney June 8, and Brisbane Jazz Club Brisbane June 21). 

The album received rave reviews from the UK press and was album of the week on Jazz FM UK.  Josh is very excited to release his album in Australia.
