Musician

The soulful Rianna Walcott sings with a style reminiscent of influences as diverse as Sarah Vaughan to Erykah Badu. Having performed in various combinations between Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Los Angeles over the last six years, her band distills the best elements of a journey into jazz that began for her aged 8. Playing a combination of Jazz, Blues, Swing, Neo-Soul, R&B and originals, the Rianna Walcott band is a product of a collaboration between Rianna and song-writing guitarist Dan Abrahams that began six years ago, when Rianna was a first year at Edinburgh University. With the addition of dynamic keys player Louis Resnick a few years later, the Rianna Walcott band was born.
