Champian Fulton (USA/AUS)

Born in Oklahoma, pianist/vocalist Champian Fulton has become a world class jazz pianist and vocalist with international acclaim. She grew up with music in the home; her mother and father (Jazz trumpeter and educator Stephen Fulton) recognized her fascination with music at an early age. The presence of her father’s musician friends, including Clark Terry and Major Holley, inspired her focus on Jazz. Her first paid musical engagement was with her own band at Clark Terry’s 75th Birthday Party; she was 10 years old. Since then, her piano and vocal skills, have been recognized by peers and critics, as distinctive and sophisticated. This young woman from Oklahoma captivates audiences in New York’s finest Jazz rooms and in concert halls around the world.

“Champian is the most gifted pure Jazz singer of her generation” – Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press

A mainstay on the vibrant New York Jazz scene, she has performed with musical royalty such as Lou Donaldson, Frank Wess, Eric Alexander, Buster Williams, and Louis Hayes. From New York to Barcelona, Champian’s swinging style and charismatic performances have made her a guardian of the legacy of Jazz. Her jazz piano heroes include Bud Powell, Red Garland, Erroll Garner, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, and Dinah Washington.

With Champian will be Australian New York resident Nick Hempton, on tenor. Nick has been in NYC for the best part of two decades and has established himself as a jazz musician of authority, taste and swing whose playing commands respect.

The rhythm section comprises hard swinging drummer Andrew Dickeson and the bassist Ashley Turner – a  formidable rhythm section.

“a charming young steward of the mainstream Jazz tradition.” – Nate Chinen, The New York Times

If you enjoy the music of our own Frances Madden then we are sure you’ll love Champian Fulton. That’s why we’ve programmed the band for two nights.

Champian Fulton received the “Female Jazz Vocalist Of the Year” at the 2017 Hot House Jazz Magazine Fans Decision Award Ceremony.
