Lauren Kinsella Named as 2013 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize Winner
16 July 2013
Congratualtions to Lauren Kinsella, who has been named as the 2013 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner.
Lauren first came to our attention in 2011 when Thought-Fox scooped our Young Musicwide Award, a unique 3-year professional development programme for emerging artists. Lauren has excelled on the programme, releasing Thought-Fox's debut CD 'My Guess' to great critical acclaim, and her work is now being championed by the BBC, including forthcoming concert opportunities at the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall. We are very proud of Lauren's achievements and highly recommend you try to catch Thought-Fox's forthcoming concert series this autumn (details here).
'There's a very approving whisper going around jazz circles - deservedly - and it's about Lauren Kinsella'. Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3
