Ian Shaw inherited a love of jazz from his late father, who was a fan of big band music. But his own route to performing jazz came via the alternative comedy circuit in London, where he met and was inspired by musicians like Carol Grimes and Julie and Keith Tippett.

Regarded by many jazz aficionados as the UK’s leading male jazz singer, and often likened to his hero Mark Murphy, Ian has released a string of well-received albums and twice named Best Vocalist at the BBC Jazz Awards

Ian is respected for his ability to re-interpret not only the usual jazz standards but also rock and pop songs by the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, David Bowie and Radiohead.
