Back for round two at Jumpers and Jazz

IF YOU hit the streets of Warwick for Jumpers and Jazz over the weekend, chances are you heard jazz vocalist Kayleigh Pincott.

The recent Brisbane Conservatorium graduate and second-time festival performer has been singing jazz for as long as she can remember.

"I learnt jazz all through high school, though I probably didn't know what it was," she laughed.

"It was just music I loved, which turned out to be mostly jazz."

Once she graduated, she took up full-time study at the Brisbane Conservatorium where she met Sophie Min, Charles Hill and Lachlan Symmons, who would complete her quartet.

"I've been performing for the last year as part of the quartet," Ms Pincott said.

"We mostly do jazz gigs at a few Brisbane venues, as well as some festivals."

Ms Pincott has performed at the Brisbane Festival, Magnetic Island Jazz Festival, the Brisbane Jazz Club, and the Brisbane Powerhouse and said she always looked forward to making the trip to Warwick for the winter festival.

"I think Jumpers and Jazz is great for Warwick," she said. "Places like these probably don't have the jazz scene Brisbane has, but for the entire festival the town gets to enjoy all these great performances."

Ms Pincott's strong sense of swing has led to her being labelled one of Queensland's most promising jazz artists.
