Album Notes
Kaz is an increasingly acclaimed, young UK singer, songwriter & guitarist. Her second album Different Smile, is a new departure of originals and arrangements with Spanish and Brazilian classical guitar styles as well as influences from the likes of Rufus and Martha Wainwright, The Divine Comedy, and her background in jazz.

Kaz’s original compositions showcase her conversational, often humorous lyrics coupled with an unaffected delivery and accomplished guitar playing, complimented by the sensitive and uncluttered support of a fine young British band : SAM CROCKATT - tenor sax, IVO NEAME - piano & Fender Rhodes, SIMON THORPE- bass and DAVE SMITH - drums. Ife Tolentino also makes a guest appearance on percussion.

Different Smile also features the Brazilian gems “Estrada do Sol“ and “O Circo Mistico”; a musical setting to British poet Wendy Cope’s “By The Round Pond”; an unusual take on the classic “How Can I Be Sure?” as well as the rarely heard “If You Knew” by Nina Simone, which was originally inspired by a Jeff Buckley recording.

"It's a beautiful record, beautifully performed and recorded" Mark Lockheart

"Simmons brings a graceful charm and insinuating ease that makes the album simply melt in the ear", Chris Parker, www.vortexjazz.co.uk
