Nishia Smith Quintet

They don’t write ‘em like they used to…except Nishla Smith does.

"Nishla Smith’s original ballads sound like standards from the American Songbook" (London Jazz News)

Nishla is a singer and songwriter who defies easy categorisation: her live sets include a breathtaking variety of material, from celebrated originals to dark jazz standards and devastating ballads, her voice stretching from melancholic sweetness through to dark intimacy.

Her often dreamy aura is offset by an energetic and imaginative band of Manchester’s finest young contemporary improvisers, with Aaron Wood (trumpet), Richard Jones (piano), Joshua Cavanagh-Brierley (bass) and Johnny Hunter (drums).

Formed out of a residency at Sage Gateshead, the Nishla Smith Quintet are supported by Jazz North’s Northern Line. Come and enjoy an evening of original songs from contemporary life.


Please note our new timings: doors open 7.45, music starts at 8.15 (8.00 when there’s a support band) and ends at 10.30.

Students pay half price on all gigs.
