Snake Davis & Jess Gillam
£25.00 (£23.00 concs; £5.00 under 35)
Soul sax-man Snake Davis teams up with rising 19-year old sax star Jess Gillam mixing classical, pop, soul and jazz pieces. Jess found the sax at 7 years old and is currently studying at Manchester’s Royal Northern College of Music where she is fast becoming established as one of the UK’s leading saxophonists. Multiple award-winner and overall runner up of BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016 she was a star soloist at the recent BBC Proms. At 19 Snake was still wondering what to do with his life. By the age of 20 the blinkers were on, head down and sax strapped almost permanently round his neck. World tours with M-People and Eurythmics followed, along with recording dates with over 400 artists from Ray Charles to Paul McCartney to Take That.
