Kayleigh Pincott is a vocalist, arranger and composer with a Bachelor of Music in jazz voice from the Queensland Conservatorium. Last year Kayleigh released her debut album Solace with her quintet, presenting original compositions and exciting arrangements, showcasing Kayleigh’s mature and individual musical voice. Solace has since received rave reviews and airtime on radio stations around Australia including features on ABC Jazz programs, Jazztrack and Home Cooked. More recently, Solace was a finalist in two categories at the Australian Jazz Bell Awards this year – a national award that celebrates the best of Australian jazz. In 2016, Kayleigh was awarded the coveted ‘Generations in Jazz’ Vocal Scholarship from a field of six finalists Australia-wide, naming her the best young jazz vocalist in the country. Kayleigh’s sensitive and captivating performance style, complemented by her strong sense of swing and unique compositional voice, has her labelled as one of Australia’s most exciting young vocalists.
“There’s a lot of vocal talent in the Australian jazz community, but it’s still rare to find a composer and songwriter with the talent and, more importantly, with the adventurous spirit of Kayleigh Pincott.” – Nikos Fotakis, AustralianJazz.net
