Hailed by The Times as “one of the country's most polished singers”, Trudy moved to London in 1990 from her native Australia. As well as gigging regularly, she worked during the day as secretary for the popular clarinettist Acker Bilk.
She took time out to study jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and in 1995 got her musical career break when Ronnie Scott offered her a week at his club. She has performed regularly at the famous Soho jazzerie ever since.
Trudy is a director of Jazzizit Records with Derek Nash. There are over 40 releases on the label. Trudy also co-presents BBC Radio Kent’s Jazz hour on a Wednesday night with Roger Day where she plays latest UK releases as well as classic jazz recordings.
She is a sought after jazz singing teacher and teaches annually on the Jazz Academy Summer Course. Trudy also tours the UK with her popular kids' show Jazz for Juniors (www.jazzforjuniors.co.uk)
