MALI SHEARD’S HOMESTEAD (LIVE) - Band on stage around 9pm, performing 2 Live Sets

Homestead is a contemporary jazz quintet fronted by saxophonist and composer Mali Sheard - a second year student at the Royal Academy Of Music.

In addition to her fondness for the Great American Songbook, she also draws inspiration from alto sax legends such as Phil Woods, Paul Desmond and Cannonball Adderley. The great vocalists that have heavily influenced her songwriting include Frank Sinatra, Blossom Dearie and James Taylor.

As a bandleader as well as a sidewoman, Mali has already performed at prestigious events and venues such as Love Supreme Festival, We Out Here Festival, Rye Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s, Queen Elizabeth Hall and Dizzy’s Club at Lincoln Center in New York.

With such a glowing CV for one so young, the sky really is the limit for this talented lady.
