The Globe Summer Festival 23-25 July
“Nishla Smith’s original ballads sound like standards from the American Songbook … maudlin
moments shoulder ecstatic reveries.” – London Jazz News
Nishla is a singer and songwriter who defies easy categorisation: her live sets include a
breathtaking variety of material, from celebrated originals to dark jazz standards and devastating
ballads. Her often dreamy and melancholic aura is offset by an energetic and imaginative band of
Manchester’s finest young contemporary improvisers.
Formed out of a residency at Sage Gateshead, the Nishla Smith Quintet have recently performed
at the Manchester and Lancaster Jazz Festivals, NQ Jazz, and The Vortex, and are currently part
of Jazz North’s ‘Northern Line’ artist roster. The quintet are working on an album for release later
Outside of her work with the quintet, Nishla is a prolific composer and collaborator. In 2020, she
toured her first staged work, ‘What Happened to Agnes’, created in collaboration with visual artist Luca Shaw and jazz pianist Tom Harris. ‘Agnes’ was co-produced by Opera North, and toured nationally with support from Arts Council England. Her new show, ‘Sister’ is currently in an R&D phase, and has been selected as part of Mercury Musical Developments’ BEAM, a showcase for new British musical theatre.
