ATILA


AtilaAtila started his career singing alongside the “National Youth Jazz Orchestra” in 2002, since then his career has blossomed as he has become a mainstay of venues that include Ronnie Scotts, the 606, The Royal Festival Hall and The Albert Hall.

In that time He has worked with some of the Jazz greats such as Buddy Greco and Sir John Dankworth as well as contemporary artists such as the Jamie Cullum and the rising American star Melanie Gardot.  Atila confesses unashamedly that he is a throwback to a golden age where, Champagne and Chandeliers dominated the Club circuit. As well as sharp suits and hard liquor

In June 2005 Atila released his first solo CD ‘Something Old, Something New’ (NYJCD023), accompanied by NYJO. Digby Fairweather critically acclaimed it as “the best I’ve heard from a British singer and orchestra since Dame Cleo and Sir John Dankworth’s Shakespeare and All That Jazz”. Jack Bowers reviewing it for All-About-Jazz wrote “he’s only a step or two away from becoming one of the finest young jazz singers to emerge in quite some time.” He followed this with ‘How Do You Keep the Music Playing’ an album containing tracks featuring small band, conventional big band and 64-piece orchestra, which he co-produced with his friend arranger/conductor Evan Jolly. 

Atila has toured extensively with Buddy Greco. The highlights of this included an appearance with the BBC Big Band at the 30th Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival, later broadcast on BBC Radio 2 Big Band Special and four nights at Ronnie Scott’s in London. 

Still in his mid-twenties, this fast maturing performer has established himself as one of Britain’s most exciting vocal talents. Sir John Dankworth predicts “a very bright future with the possibility of Atila’s name eventually ending up in lights.”
