Esperanza Spalding

Gig info

Pre-order the new Radio Music Society album here, out 19th March. For a sneak preview, click here.

The remarkable story of Esperanza Spalding takes yet another leap forward with the launch of her brilliant new CD, Radio Music Society. Complementing the chart-topping Chamber Music Society, the new project merges r‘n’b, pop and nu-soul with her jazz roots. Featuring compelling original songs alongside covers such as Stevie Wonder’s ‘I Can’t Help It’, it’s confirmation of a style-spanning presence in today’s music that is certain to make an even wider global impact for the multi-talented vocalist/composer/bassist. A mesmerising live performer, Esperanza played two sell-out shows at the Barbican in 2011 with the music from Chamber Music Society following her unprecedented Grammy Award last year. This exclusive UK concert in KOKO's intimate atmosphere promises to be one of the must-see highlights of 2012.

"Esperanza Spalding is a marvel. Everything this leggy, Afro-haired wunderkind does is of the highest order. The girl just can't help sounding hip.” Evening Standard
