What People Are Saying About My Performances…

18th October 2020

“What an exciting performer you are Kim Cypher. Just fabulous!”

Debs Hancock – Black Mountain Jazz / Wall2Wall Festival 2020

 

“Nothing short of style & class. A must see jazz show.”

Rod Lucas – Best Smooth Jazz Radio

 

“Even in an empty theatre this was an exciting, entertaining and totally professional performance from Kim Cypher and her highly talented quintet. A varied programme put a jazz slant on a variety of musical genres and maintained my attention throughout. The standard of the playing was consistently excellent. Kim has been playing the sax since the age of nine and I was impressed by her ability on the three versions of the instrument that she featured today. She’s also a highly accomplished vocalist and it’s this, combined with her vivacious personality that has helped to make her something of a rising star on the UK jazz circuit. I suspect that this will prove to be one of the most popular items in this ‘Virtual Festival’.”

Jazz In Europe

 

“At a time when the world seems more than a little confusing and dark and where every day the news brings us something else to contemplate and worry about, Kim Cypher brings us the sparkle, joy and love we all need. She is the perfect medicine. Although I am very familiar with Kim’s work, this was my first time seeing her live. I had high expectations, to be honest, and they were not only met, but exceeded.”

Fiona Ross – Jazz In Europe

 

“One of the UK’s most popular players.”

Sammy Stein – Women In Jazz (new book published by 8th House)

Devon Harrison – Jazz At The Bonded Warehouse

 

“Kim is a dedicated, serious musician – it’s a pleasure to work with a true student carrying on the magic we know as music for music lovers.  She’s a vivacious, beautiful soul. Hats off to a true heart and soul performer.”

“Great evening with a stage full of talent.”

Graham Smith – Pershore Jazz

 

“Kim Cypher shows how it’s done at Pizza Express with a killer band. A sold-out audience-participation crowd rewarded with a standing ovation. Great night!”

Danielle White – Raestar Promotions UK

 

“Kim Cypher brought Lichfield to it’s knees as part of Lichfield Arts Festival! Kim’s incredible talent as both saxophonist and singer saw her alternating between playing her many instruments (soprano, alto and tenor saxophone) and then showcasing her sultry singing voice.”

Kristen Lackajis – City Life Magazine January 2020

 

“Kim brings so many elements to her performance that few achieve. She is genuine and truly cares about her audience and wants them to be part of what she is feeling – and we do. Her artistry is infectious, and it is abundantly clear why she has been kicking up the best type of storm across the UK.”

Nigel J. – Jazz In Europe

 

“Exciting stuff!”

Clare Teal – BBC Radio 2

 

“On Saturday August 24th the Jazz Room at the legendary Bull’s Head in Barnes was filled with a decidedly appreciative audience for the special album tour of singer and saxophonist Kim Cypher’s new album, ‘Love Kim‘. Kim and her talented band had the crowd shouting for more as they played two highly entertaining sets which brilliantly showcased the funkier side of the jazz genre…”

Larry Pryce – Writer & Broadcaster

 

“A thoroughly entertaining and varied evening of live jazz at its best.”

Ian Scott – U3A Jazz Appreciation group

 

“What a delight to host Kim Cypher & her wonderful trio of musicians, an incredibly professional outfit who are a joy to experience. Superb musicianship from all  and lovely arrangements of some well known songs that sounded better than the originals. Please get along to see Kim and the band if you can – you won’t be disappointed.”

Ann Taylor – Annie’s Jazz Club Southend

 

“Kim Cypher is a vibrant saxophonist, a fine singer and has an exuberant stage presence.  Opening a Festival is a tricky art. I’ve never seen an artist engage with an audience better and get the crowd up and dancing so quickly. Kim and her fine band were a perfect choice as openers. They set the tone for our 25th Festival and got the day off to a great start.  I look forward to working with them again.”

Paul Kelly – Programming and Promotions Officer – Stompin’ On The Quomps Festival August 2019

 

“We had foot tapping music, beautifully played and superbly presented by a singing saxophonist who really knows her stuff. A really top class show with really professional presentation throughout and great jazz.”

John Hellings – Severn Jazz / BBC Radio Hereford & Worcester

 

“The band was exceptional. In years to come this concert will be very sought after to watch again and again, for future generations. It was just one of those nights.”
