I recently partnered up with a great singer, Simone Craddock, to record our arrangement of “Something” by the Beatles, in Jazz style.
We are really happy with the outcome, hope you enjoy this little video!
Here’s a little about Simone, make sure you check her out!
Simone Craddock’s varied career has taken her across her native Australia, Asia, America and Europe, where she is now residing in London as a vocalist and songwriter. She has performed in some of the capital’s best regarded venues, including Ronnie Scotts, Cadogan Hall, Pizza Express, Vortex, Park Chinois and Live at Zedel.
Abroad, she has performed to full houses at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, Palais de Festival in Cannes, Kursaal Theatre in Belgium, Lyric Theatre in Hong Kong and most recently, the Yacht Club de Monaco and Grimaldi Forum in Monte Carlo.
Simone’s style and repertoire emerge from an eclectic musical upbringing in jazz, country, brass & big bands, with a sprinkling of pop and disco. Whilst her passion for jazz was originally fired by the classics; Sarah Vaughan, Nancy Wilson, Ray Charles and her namesake Nina Simone, she continues to be inspired by contemporary artists, including Dave Matthews Band, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Melody Gardot and Amy Winehouse.
Simone’s original compositions emerge from these influences and the experiences that have shaped her on her journey thus far. She is currently working on her debut album, due for release in early 2018.
Also a respected West End leading actress, Simone has played the largest theatres in the UK & Asia with shows such as Dirty Dancing, Annie, Jesus Christ Superstar and Hello Dolly! Simone is a also a voiceover artist, best affiliated with award-winning children’s programmes, “Bottersnikes & Gumbles” and “Captain Flinn & the Pirate Dinosaurs” for ABC, Channel 7 & 9 Australia.
