#musicmonday : Maria Bentley and UK Soul Jam


The joys of Twitter!

Over the weekend I was sent a DM, followed by an email, from DJ/promoter/soul music lover Paul Aaaron regarding talented UK vocalist Maria Bentley and the upcoming UK Soul Jam (held at London’s Jazz Café). Maria will be performing alongside Lenny Henry (yes, THAT Lenny Henry … didn’t know he could sing), Noel Mckoy, Camden United Gospel Choir, East London Soul Singers Choir and other special guests, aswell as DJ sets from Paul and DJ Kay.

Maria’s music reminds me a bit of a British Chrisette Michele, in terms of her jazz/classic soul sensibilities. She has 6 tracks available for free from her ReverbNation page, and although the raw production leaves a little to be desired, her voice definitely shines through.

Take a listen to one of her tracks and take a peek at the UK Soul Jam flyer below.
