Becca is a versatile musician and an experienced vocalist across a wide range of musical genres. An equally accomplished vocal coach, Becca has an excellent knowledge of vocal styles, technique, harmony and arranging.

Having studied with some of the UK’s most prolific jazz vocalists at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Becca finds herself most at home with jazz and blues. In 2018 she released the self-promoted duo EP with pianist Tom Harris, wilkins/harris, with an accompanying UK tour the same year. Becca’s other projects range from artful storytelling and sensitive textural vocals to energetic showmanship and commanding extemporisation. A confident side-woman, Becca has collaborated extensively with jazz pianist Maria Grapsa and composer Olivia Murphy in projects including afterglow of a dream suite, Tomorrow Songs and Olivia Murphy Jazz Orchestra.

Elsewhere, she can be found performing as the front-woman of energetic, brass-fuelled jazz-pop fusion band, Argle Bargle, epic 22-piece orchestra and DJ experience Symphonica ft Mr Switch, as well as with high performance outfit The Distractions.

Becca also has a strong choral background and recently joined London Vocal Project, one of the UK’s leading contemporary vocal ensembles, specialising in jazz, blues and groove music.

Jason Charles-Nelson

I am a professional musical director and composer, specialising primarily in tonal music and soundscape design. My works are rather eclectic, in that there is no commonly occurring theme amongst them in terms of style or genre. Having had the opportunity to gain plenty of experience from working in my specialist field whilst studying for my bachelors degree, I have rapidly acquired a vast amount of skills and music-related knowledge, particularly from a creative and performance-related perspective.

Primarily a skilled pianist, I have been fortunate enough to tour with various ensembles, performing in countries across Europe and the Caribbean, on renowned stages such as the Royal Albert Hall and ITV's “The X Factor”.

With an advanced understanding of the capabilities of varying instruments, I am capable of operating within any musical genre to a high level of proficiency, as well as directing performers and ensembles in the same manner.

Thanks to years of experience in learning to operate music production software such as Logic Pro (and Pro Tools), I am fully adept at autonomously carrying out the recording process by way of digital production, an invaluable skill in this modern age of music. My experience in teaching and tutoring various students has greatly aided my ability to communicate ideas in a clear, comprehensible manner, a skill which further qualifies me as a capable director, along with my immediate work history in musical theatre.
