The Spirit of Swing - Swing Singers

Looking for a swing singer in Lancashire - why not book this superb duo for your event!

The Spirit of Swing is a project that has long aspired to launch and a dream that has now become reality. This meeting of these two like-minded guys who grew up miles apart but with similar musical influences, has resulted in an awesome collaboration featuring classic swing and jazz music.

Steve always looked like singing could have become part of his life, performing Matt Monro's 'Softly as I Leave You' as a three-year-old, but a different pathway led him into the world of the DJ and radio presenter. However, there were occasions throughout the 80's and 90's when he would take to the stage and surprise friends, who only knew him as a DJ, that he could actually hold a tune! Then the shout would invariably go up, 'why ain't you singing for a living?'
And so after more than 30 years playing other peoples music for a living, it's finally time for him to taste life from the performer's side of the stage, and this is where second singer comes into the picture.

Phil has been singing for as long as he can remember. He earned his apprenticeship in the 80’s as a keyboard player/vocalist with various pop/rock bands around the North West of England, most notably, 'Airplay' - which also became the name of their own rehearsal and recording studios. Eventually he moved on and upped sticks to East Anglia where he became lead vocalist with the Jonathan Wyatt Big Band, singing songs from the classic big band/swing era. He also performed regularly with the Chris Walls Big Band, The Pavilion Big Band and Skyliner.

Now back on home turf in Manchester it was only a matter of time before they would renew their plans to finally realise the idea that was forged years before. This really is the proverbial dream team! A perfect combination of natural talent, quality music and years of experience all brought to the table. So keep abreast of their gigs, videos and songs across all the main social media platforms and be sure to pay a visit when the guys are performing at a venue near you. Reawakening the great American songbook, they truly are, 'The Spirit of Swing'.
