From Swing To Soul


Cabaret stars Diane Horan Hill and Phil Lee-Thomas between them explore their love of song, From Swing to Soul, hand-picked from the Great American Songbook, pop/soul standards, and classics from the stage and screen, both old and new.

Accompanied by a 3-piece band, Diane and Phil will be joined by special guests: soprano and burlesque phenomenon Laura Nadia Hunt, musical theatre baritone Michael Lowe, soul sensation Miles Elliot, songwriter Mark Bunyan, and cabaret superstar Doctor Woof.

Diane Horan Hill is a much-sought after singer on the London cabaret circuit, specialising in soul and jazz blues. Along with Phil Lee-Thomas she was a finalist in the London Gay Big Band's search for a star vocalist in 2014. As well as a renowned soloist she is also one half of 'Heart & Soul' with singer Miles Elliot, celebrating a shared love of soul classics from Motown to modern funk. Diane also appears on the 2017 Pride in London single, The Rest of Us, and the Cancer is a Drag charity single, Christmas Time With You, both alongside Phil Lee-Thomas and a whole host of London cabaret stars.

Phil Lee-Thomas is resident singer of Swingcopation Big Band. As an actor he has appeared as Doctor Alec Harvey in Everyman's Brief Encounter, as Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard and most recently in Wild Duck Theatre London's production of The Distance. He has performed at the Welsh Proms, the Pheasantry Chelsea, California Jazz Conservatory, the Charing Cross Theatre, the Southbank Underbelly Festival and on the Trafalgar Square main stage as part of this year's Pride in London. Phil continues to develop his solo cabaret shows such as The Great Welsh Songbook, and Too Marvelous For Words: The Johnny Mercer Songbook, which was premiered at the Crazy Coqs in 2016.
