Laura & The Jazz Capsule are a collective of musicians creating music that’s brimming with nostalgia. The band is headed up by Laura Arundell, whose love for artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Gregory Porter shines through in both her songwriting and musicianship. She is most often backed by seasoned guitarist, Matthew Arundell, with drums, double bass and horns occasionally joining them when that bigger sound and show is needed. They are usually found harnessing a vintage vibe at festivals, venues and events across the South West, playing their own material alongside 40s jazz classics.
Laura has averaged over 50 gigs per year for over 10 years and this has included supporting bands such as Madness and playing corporate events for the likes of ITV and BBC. In their first year, Laura & The Jazz Capsule have supported artists such as Elbow, been shortlisted for the prestigious UK Peter Whittingham Jazz Award and have released their debut EP “Slow Down” which has had BBC and international airplay.
