Todd Gordon

Todd Gordon is one of Britain's leading jazz and swing singers. Working with top
musicians, his audiences range from intimate jazz club settings to large-scale
concert halls and festivals. 

Steeped in the American Songbook tradition, he was the first-ever Scottish male
vocalist to be booked for the London Jazz Festival. He’s performed at dozens of
leading venues including Ronnie Scott’s, The Royal Opera House, The Sage, Glasgow
Royal Concert Hall and Birmingham Town Hall, as well as The Algonquin and The Plaza
hotels in New York.

He has also appeared in joint concerts with fellow singers, Jacqui Dankworth, Clare
Teal, Claire Martin, Elaine Delmar, Tina May, Ian Shaw, Barb Jungr, Carol Kidd,
Anita Wardell, Juliet Roberts and Eddi Reader, as well as the marvellous BBC Big

Additionally, he is also developing a growing following in South East Asia following
one of his recordings being licensed as a theme song for a highly popular TV series
in that region. 

There are two albums due for release later this year: one which he recorded in Seoul
with Korean musicians, as well as a big band album with the chart-topping Royal Air
Force Squadronaires which is aid of the charity, Help for Heroes.
