British soul-jazz singer/pianist Oli Rockberger is set to release his new album, Sovereign, on 20 October on the Whirlwind Recordings label. Rockberger has recently relocated to London after an extended stay in the US where he toured and recorded extensively with the likes of Carly Simon, John Mayer, Steve Gadd, Randy Brecker, Steve Jordan, Nathan East, Becca Stevens, Louis Cole and Chris Dave’s Drumhedz.
The keyboardist now divides his time between touring with Jazz FM Award-winning singer Laura Mvula and leading his own band, which for several UK dates to support the album release features drummer Marijus Aleksa, guitarist Giorgio Serci, vocalist/fiddler Hannah Read and bassist Michael Janisch. Dates are: Soundcellar, Poole (12 Oct); The Jazz Bar, Edinburgh (18 Oct); Pizza Express Jazz Club, High Holborn (19-20 Oct) and EFG London Jazz Festival @ Pizza Express Jazz Club, Soho (14 Nov).
