Gwyneth Herbert goes it alone

A year after she signed to Universal Classics and Jazz and released her debut album, Bittersweet and Blue, singer Gwyneth Herbert has parted company with the label. Intending to concentrate on her own material in the future Herbert says: "I've been writing non-stop since Bittersweet and Blue and feel for the first time that the music is me. I consider myself very fortunate to have had the experience of working with Universal: I've been able to tour extensively, grow as a musician and develop my vision. A spokesperson for the record label says: "UCJ and Gwyneth Herbert have decided to end their recording contract by mutual agreement. Gwyn has decided to concentrate on her live career and UCJ wish her every success in the future. We will be watching her development as an artist with great interest." In early September she debuted a new band at Pizza Express Jazz Club featuring keyboardist Tom Cawley, bassist Sam Burgess and percussionist Dave Price. Future dates include: Cork Jazz Festival (29 Oct); St George's, Bristol (10 Nov); Spitz, London (14 Nov) and a residency at Live On The Park (formerly Pizza On The Park) in December.
