Summer Festival | Frontline & Ni Maxine


An incredible jazz double bill celebrating a new generation of women at the forefront of UK jazz. 

The award-winning British Neo-Jazz Singer-Songwriter, Ni Maxine has been hailed a ‘Black Woman at The Forefront of the UK Jazz Scene’ (Black Ballad). She is sparking inter-generational conversations for change through song, exploring themes of home, identity, self-esteem and belonging.

Ni’s audience have compared her to Billie Holiday, Sade and Erykah Badu. Her conscious and political lyricism, and timeless vocals, have taken her to the main stage at Liverpool’s Africa Oyé, Gilles Peterson’s ‘We Out Here’ and the EFG London Jazz Festival.

With a BBC Introducing ‘highlight’ live session under her belt, a Manchester Jazz Festival performance broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s J to Z, and a live appearance on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Front Row’, Ni has carved a path for her afro-centric and soulful sound.

Her award-winning debut single Strange Love gained support from Jamie Cullum (The Jazz Show), YolanDa Brown, Jamz Supernova and China Moses.

Ni Maxine live is just beautiful, that voice you can hear on the record is exactly what you can hear in person. YolanDa Brown, Jazz FM
