Following two sell out runs at Crazy Coqs, PURDY returns singing songs from her forthcoming debut album DIAMOND IN THE DUST, produced with Grammy award winning Andy Wright, famed for his records with Imelda May & Simply Red.
And PURDY is certainly kicking up the dust and thrilling international audiences with her distinctive, sultry vocals. She has impressed some major audiences including 90,000 people at Wembley, F1 events and The London Lifestyle Awards. She has sung for the likes of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Mick Jagger, and was recently a guest singer on Richard Branson's Necker Island where she supported Lana Del Rey.
Purdy writes songs with all the swagger and poetic charm of a new age femme fatale with hints of Nina Simone, Nancy Sinatra, Peggy Lee and Henry Mancini. The new album includes songs co-written with Emily Phillips (Rizzle Kicks writer) Tim Baxter, Damian Montague, Charlie Perry and Jamiroquai's pianist and producer Matt Johnson.
