Swing Spectacular with Matt Ford

Swing Spectacular with Matt Ford

Matt Ford is widely regarded as the finest big band singer in the UK. Performing for five years with the multi-award winning Syd Lawrence Orchestra gave him the chance to develop and grow as a swing singer, and in 2006 was voted 'Best UK Big Band Vocalist' and nominated alongside Jamie Cullum in the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Awards (Best UK Male Vocalist category). 

As a soloist Matt makes regular appearances with the RTE and BBC Concert Orchestras and has also worked with the Northern Sinfonia, City of Birmingham Symphony and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestras. In 2010 Matt was invited to join the cast of Singin' In The Rain for the first ever concert performance of the original film score performed at the Royal Festival Hall.

As a big band vocalist Matt is constantly in demand working with the BBC Big Band and the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Orchestra amongst many others. In 2009 Matt made his debut on 'Friday Night Is Music Night' on BBC Radio 2 and broadcast with the BBC Big Band for the 30th anniversary of Radio 2's Big Band Special programme.
