ABOUT ME

Able to perform various styles of music ranging from Jazz, Blues, Bossanova, Pop and the classic Italian Songbook, the Irene Serra Band were Time Out Critics Choice in 2015 and are building up a fantastic reputation from performing in prestigious venues around the UK and London such as the Barbican Centre, Ronnie Scotts, Pizza Express Jazz Club in Dean Street, the 606 Jazz Club, the Union Chapel in Islington, Kings Place, the Forge Venue, the Hackney Empire, Theatre Royal Stratford East, and the National Theatre.

Irene was one of the semi-finalists in The Brussels International Young Jazz Singer in 2008 and was the only European finalist in the Shure Jazz Voice Competition at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2009. She has also worked as a session singer and vocalist in Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, Switzerland and the UK.

Born in Milan, Italy, Irene moved to Denmark at the age of 3. From a very young age she developed her love for singing whilst performing in choirs, musicals and church. After moving back to Milan, she started studying Jazz at the age of 16 with the renowned Italian Jazz singer Tiziana Ghiglioni at the Academy of Music in Milan. She moved to London in 1999 to continue her music studies at the University Of Surrey and then Goldsmiths College. She currently holds a Grade 8 voice in Classical Music and has recently completed a Masters in Music (Jazz Studies) at the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama.

Louise Marongiu

I hired Irene on a regular basis as one of the lead singers in my band The Bellinis, and she was always a joy to work with. Not only is she very talented, great fun to be around and extremely professional, but she also looks stunning on a stage. I really enjoyed working with her and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Sofia Wilde

I have worked with Irene for several years, and on numerous events. An incredibly talented and versatile performer, Irene is one of the most professional and hard working vocalists I have had the pleasure of working with. Feedback has always been fantastic and her sunny attitude and willingness to go the extra mile, makes her an absolute joy to work with. I know that I can trust Irene to do an outstanding job on any event I book her on. I would recommend her without any hesitation!

Geoff Sheridan

We've employed Irene for a number of family occasions, including a wedding, and anniversary and a wake. She is a very talented and hard working vocalist with a beautiful and versatile singing voice. She has always been incredibly professional, paying close attention to our requests regarding repertoire, and playing suitable music for celebration, dancing or contemplation. We have generally wanted her to play jazz standard tunes for listening and sometimes ballroom dancing, and we couldn't be more pleased with the work she has done for us.

Irene has played several time with her trio in our restaurant Artigiano in North London. It is always a pleasure to have her singing and she is very much appreciated by our clientèle. We have just booked her in again for a future date and we look forward to hear her music.
