Dublinjazz.ie Presents at Bagots Hutton LIVE

Graham J. is fast gaining an international reputation as one of the finest singer/songwriters of his generation. Acclaimed for his highly emotional interpretations, outstanding and unique vocals and his eclectic mix of repertoire. His music is being played on stations throughout the UK, USA and Canada. Graham's first album "Wild Is" received much acclaim with four and five star reviews from magazines such as Maverick Magazine and Blues Matters.

On his debut album Wild Is... Graham explores elements of jazz, blues, classical and alternative contemporary. The avant-garde, almost vaudevillian, presentation underlies themes of evolution and transformation which define the work. The strictures of Graham's extensive operatic career as a rarely found tenore contraltino, though strongly acknowledged, are overthrown by his love of a broader breadth of influences including Nina Simone, Shirley Bassey and Karen Carpenter. A sense of mourning, loss and ultimately resolution permeate Graham's choice of repertoire echoing the work of truly indefinable characters like Rufus Wainright, Antony and the Johnsons, Bjork.

Graham was approached by BBC 6 Music and BBC Merseyside to record his own version of Ian Prowse’s “Does This Train Stop on Merseyside”. This recording will feature as part of a new documentary about how Irish Artists have influenced musical life in Liverpool. Graham J’s performance will be featured alongside contributions from major musical artists including Elvis Costello, Christy Moore and Miles Hunt. The documentary is scheduled to air in the Autumn 2017.

2018 kicked off with a bang. Graham made his Broadway debut at The Laurie Beechman Theatre at The West Back Café. Home to many of Broadway’s greatest artists including the late great Joan Rivers. Whilst in New York, Graham was a guest of famed DJ and taste maker Larry Flick on Sirius Xm’s Entertainment Weekly. America’s number one entertainment show. Larry played several of Graham’s recordings to an estimated audience of 51.6 million people. After New York, Graham flew to London to make his debut at the legendary Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Graham’s performance schedule is becoming busier and busier. In May he will return to London to make his debut at the fabled Pizza Express. He has also been asked headline at this year’s Sitges Pride Festival in June. In between performances he is set to record two new albums of exciting material for release later in the year.

Graham is a native of Dublin, Ireland.
