Likened to Kathleen Ferrier by The Times, the newspaper went on to describe today’s rare contralto voice as ‘stunning… Jess Dandy offered sumptuous tone and beautiful legato. She’s a name to watch.’ Cumbrian born Dandy has been praised for her instrument of velvety plangent timbre, and her artistic maturity of remarkable immediacy. A number of important débuts recently have included performances at the
First Night of the BBC Proms, Wigmore Hall recitals and work with a range of the finest conductors.

Jess is co-founder of the mental health initiative, SongPath, which encourages creative and restorative connection on therapeutically curated musical walking trails in beautiful surroundings.

A love of nature and walking in the Lake District has strengthened the special partnership Dandy has with Martin Roscoe, unarguably one of the UK’s finest and most popular pianists.
