Clare Teal has twice been voted British Jazz Singer of the year and also the BBC’s Jazz Singer of the year. Away from her singing work, Clare is becoming increasingly well known to radio listeners for her two weekly big band shows on BBC Radio 2, whether it be Clare Teal Sunday Night at 10pm or Big Band Special on Mondays at 11pm. Passionate about the music she plays on her shows, Clare is on a one woman mission to introduce younger audiences to the joys of big band music. Clare has also written articles for the Times and various magazines and for the past 4 years has penned a weekly column for her beloved Yorkshire Post.
Clare made a welcome return to recording in 2011 with her tenth album ‘Hey Ho’ a celebration of The Great British Songbook, spanning a period of almost 120 years from Yeats to Snow Patrol and including two of her own compositions. She also appeared at the Royal Albert Hall during the Proms, appearing with the John Wilson Orchestra and singing, amongst others, "Secret Love" to great acclaim.
