Helen Baden jazz singer, book for festivals, private functions, retirement celebrations. Lancashire lass, Helen, gave her first public performance at the age of five when she astounded the whole of her primary school with an a cappella rendition of Paul McCartney’s “Yesterday”.  She hasn't stopped singing since!

Moving to London in the 1980s, Helen joined the South Kensington Women's classical choir and performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank before taking a leap in the opposite direction and becoming a rock chick with award winning West London based covers band the Phantoms.  After three years of shouting, Helen decided to return to her first love - JAZZ!

Since emerging on the London jazz scene, the last two years have seen Helen perform with distinguished musicians such as Digby Fairweather and his Half Dozen, Humphrey Lyttelton, George Melly, Liane Carroll, Dave Green, Jimmy Hastings, Kate Williams, Gunther Keuymer and Geoff Castle. Venues have included Pizza Express, Dean St, the Bull’s Head in Barnes, the Spice of Life and the Ram Jam Club in Kingston.

Helen is also the founder and director of a new entertainment agency, Jazz Artists Direct, which specialises in providing high quality jazz artists & musicians for theatres, arts centres, festivals, jazz clubs, corporate & private events.
