HETTY LOXSTON

my work

I am a versatile vocalist from London. Classically trained in the UK (Trinity Laban and Lancaster University) and in Italy (Conservatorio di Bologna), I perform as a soloist, the lead singer of a number of bands and as a session singer.

I perform a varied repertoire from 1920s vintage numbers to present-day pop and soul. Having lived in Italy for five years, I am a fluent Italian speaker and I developed a large Italian repertoire of timeless Italian songs, jazz and folk music. I love to weave exotic Spanish and Cuban songs, French chanson, and Brazilian Bossa Nova into my set.

 

I have experience performing at some of the U.K.'s most prestigious venues including The Tower of London, Hever Castle, the V&A Museum, The Royal Academy of Art, Verdi's at the Royal Albert Hall, Chiswick House, The Beaumont Estate. St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Searcy's at the Gherkin, The Shangrila at the Shard, The Dorchester Hotel, One Marylebone, Annabelle's Mayfair, The Royal Horseguards Hotel, One Whitehall Place, Kensington Roof Gardens, Madison, St Pauls and Soho Farmhouse.

 

International performances also include Majeez Hotel, Egypt, an Italian Swing Festival in Rhodes at 5* 'Albergo Delle Rose, Casino Rodos' Hotel, Perelik World Music Festival in Bulgaria, Carribean Club, Kiev, and a variety of weddings and private celebrations in Italy including; on a superyacht in Portovenere, 5* Luxury Resort 'La Verdura', in Agrigento, and Luxury Villas like the Villa di Maiano in Fiesole, Florence, in Gallipoli, Lake Garda, Pisa and Taormina.

 

Recent Festival performances in the UK include Henley Jazz Festival and Aldeburgh Music Festival. In 2020 I was invited to perform with Hetty and the Jazzato Band at Moscow Performing Arts Centre and Jazz, The Rodin Museum in Paris, and a Blues Festival Valcea in Romania.

 

I am also passionate about singing for health. I am the resident singer for the CW+ Charity at the Chelsea and Westminster and West Middlesex Hospitals and performed for the Alzheimer's Society, Jewish Care and MIHC Charities.

Hetty and The Jazzato Band 

I formed 'Hetty and the Jazzato Band' in 2015. I am the lead singer and manage the band. I have successfully helped the band to gain an international following for the Band (over 100, 000 followers in 137 countries). 

 

Hetty and the Jazzato Band take you on a Vespa ride back to retro bella Italia with an explosive mix of Italian song intertwined with rustic Roman Stornelli, romantic Neapolitan ballads, enticing bossa nova and samba rhythms along with foot-tapping rock 'n' roll and boogie-woogie.

Hetty and the Jazzato Band have performed at events at some of the UK's historical landmarks and most prestigious venues such as The Tower of London, The Royal Albert Hall, Hever Castle, The Royal Academy of Art. The band is frequently invited to perform at a variety of significant Italian events in the UK and abroad including The Italian Awards, Horsham Piazza Italia, Festival Italia in Brands Hatch, Bellavita Expo, Harvey Nichols 'Britalia'. Other notable international performances include Jazz and World Music festivals in Greece, Bulgaria, and Ukraine and Henley Festival in the UK. Hetty and the Jazzato Band have also been invited to perform in the USA, China, Korea, at Moscow Performing Arts Center (May 2020- postponed due to the Pandemic), Jazz and Blues Festival 'Valcea' in Romania (July 2021) and the Rodin Museum in Paris (June 2022). ​

During 2020/21 Hetty managed the production of the band's debut album release 'Back in The Swing of Things' (released 14/02/21).
