Helen Abbey graduated from the Rose Bruford College of Speech and Drama with a Diploma in Performing Arts. Her singing career began with The Swing Sisters, an acapella close-harmony group regularly performing at London's The Ritz Hotel.

Three albums later - 'Simply Me', 'Second Time Around' and 'Unusual Girl' (with the latin-jazz group, Verão!) - Helen's career as a jazz singer has led to international collaborations and tours, and numerous sessions for BBC radio. Her music is loved and played worldwide: from Brazil to Denmark, Japan to the Philippines.

Helen currently entertains at her live shows with a classy set of jazz standards, encompassing everything from Rat-Pack swing, to Ella Fitzgerald, together with a stylish sprinkling of original songs. There's something for everyone.

"Helen Abbey is one of East Anglia's best singers, not just in the field of jazz but in many other genres too. ..... This is Helen Abbey at her very best. She has never sounded better and has found herself a cracking band."
Stephen Foster, BBC Radio Suffolk

"Thanks for a fantastic evening's entertainment with your brilliant new band last Sunday. It is a great sound you have created; love your own new compositions. We will put the tracks from your new CD on our jazz mix playing at The Fox."
Shelia Blackmore, Jazz Nights @ The Fox Inn, Bury St Edmunds
