After reading ‘50 Words for Classical Music Marketers to Rest’ earlier today, discussing the most overused ‘buzzwords’ in marketing and press releases, we decided to write an alternative press release for Kate Dimbleby incorporating as many of the 50 words as possible…

Back by Popular Demand: Kate Dimbleby on stage

In this unique, not to be missed show, the beloved Kate Dimbleby celebrates powerful women of song at the New End Theatre, Hampstead – 31st August – 3rd October

With rave reviews citing her as “one of the most versatile singers on the jazz/blues circuit” Kate Dimbleby is celebrating the definitive women who’s music inspires her. Being a distinguished jazz singer, Kate will be performing soulful music from timeless favouritesfeaturing songwriters Bessie Smith, Dolly Parton and Dusty Springfield – her soaring vocals paying tribute to these immortal divas.

She makes a return to the stage with the legendary Cirque du Soleil director Cal McCrystal, with whom she is working for the third time, collaborating with her new band, The Honky Tonk Angels as they explore the highs and lows of a woman’s life, at home, at work and at play – inspired by Kate’s own magical experience of being a powerful woman; a mother of two and a successful singer.

After the amazing debut of her heartwarming show in London, Kate will culminate her impeccable 5-week run of this exciting range of songs with a UK-wide tour.

An award winning singer, Kate has established herself as one of the rising stars on the jazz/blues circuit. Critically acclaimed, reviews of her past concerts and recordings speak of her versatility, passion and soul. Not only is Kate an extraordinary singer, but she has emerged as a gifted songwriter, producing a spectacular album of her own music entitled Things As They Are in 2009.

Kate’s diverse career has seen her wow audiences with flawless performances across Britain and at stunning and phenomenal venues including the Royal Festival Hall, Pizza on the Park, The Stables at Wavendon and Soho’s exclusive club, Kabaret. She has frequently appeared at the iconic Lenny Beige’s Regency Rooms and Madame JoJo’s in Soho. She has toured Australia and New Zealand with her shows Fever! and Music to Watch Boys By.

Maturing from wunderkind to a stellar modern diva, Kate’s magisterial voice makes her the one of the world’s finest and leading ambassadors of the music of the blues era.

I’m A Woman includes masterpieces ranging from the wistful Hold On (One of Kate’s own, inimitable, compositions) to a triumphant rendition of the Rolling Stones’ Mother’s Little Helper.
