About the evening
Led by the songwriting team of vocalist Louise Victoria and drummer, Mark Whitlam, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Neo-Soul, R'n'B and Down Tempo genres. Louise's voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens. Musically there are nods in the direction of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack and Lamb. Following invitations to appear at So What’s Next? festival in The Netherlands in 2017 and many UK jazz festivals in 2018, their debut album Breathe has received critical acclaim, extensive air play on JazzFM and BBC Introducing and launched to a sold out audience at London’s Pizza Express Jazz Club. The members of the band have worked with some of the UKs elite jazz musicians, including Andy Sheppard, Iain Ballamy, Jason Rebello, Clare Teal, Claire Martin, and Liane Caroll and spanning soul and downtempo genres with Joss Stone, Beverley Knight, Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp).

“Well judged, well executed and based on some very accomplished songwriting, this is a fantastic slice of down-beat music for upbeat people” - Tap The Feed

“Soulful business from We Are Leif ... a particular favourite of mine ... look out for them!” - Tony Minvielle, Jazz FM
