For a jazz club Blue Tone vibe join us upstairs at The Kings Arms for a dose of the Bristol jazz scene. With rich soulful vocals, an eloquent and familiar Bristol drum n bass vibe interspersed with rockier sections, make this an accessible intro to new jazz aficionados.

'Blending their improv Jazz chops with neo-soul and grown up R'n'B, and then giving it a smoky, backstreet club vibe borrowed from Trip Hop and unmistakably Bristolian, We Are Leif have created something that is reassuringly familiar yet excitingly new' - Tap The Feed

Led by the songwriting team of vocalist Louise Victoria and drummer, Mark Whitlam, We Are Leif deftly span the balance of jazz sensibilities with the groove and sound world more associated with Neo-Soul, R'n'B and Down Tempo genres. Louise's voice sits comfortably alongside the company of Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens. Musically there are nods in the direction of Erykah Badu and Jill Scott whilst retaining a classic Bristol sound, steeped in the history of bands like Portishead, Massive Attack and Lamb.

The artists have independently worked and collaborated with Moscow Drug Club, Will Gregroy, Adrian Utley, Clare Teal, Mark Ford (Black Crowes), Beverly Knight and more!
