Laura & The Jazz Capsule are a collective of professional musicians bringing the sound and style of 40s Jazz with a modern twist. The relaxed keys & vocals of Laura Philpott and seasoned guitar playing of Matthew Arundell form the core duo, with influence drawn from greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Prima. They are usually found creating the perfect ambience at festivals, weddings, corporate events and various venues across the south west. Drums, double bass and trumpet occasionally join Laura and Matt when that bigger sound and show is needed, as featured on their debut EP due to be released in 2022.
As longtime musicians, Laura and Matt average over 100 gigs per year and have built extensive experience of performing both in the UK and internationally. This has included supporting bands such as Madness and Sugarhill Gang, enhancing corporate events for organisations such as ITV and BBC and playing at many of the largest UK festivals.
