Irene Serra – an Italian Jazz vocalist and composer, has made a significant impact in the jazz world with her diverse and eclectic repertoire. Based in London, she is celebrated for her masterful renditions of jazz standards, blues, Brazilian music, and original compositions. Her musical journey started at the Academy of Music in Milan, where she studied under the guidance of renowned jazz vocalist Tiziana Ghighlioni. Irene’s passion for jazz took her to London, where she continued her studies at Goldsmiths College, later earning a distinction in her Masters in Music Performance from the Guildhall School Of Music and Drama.

Irene’s career has been marked by performances at prestigious venues such as the Barbican, where she shared the stage with Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Southbank Centre, Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express Jazz Club, Union Chapel, and King’s Place. These appearances have established her as a thoughtful and intelligent musician, deeply committed to her craft.

Her original project, ISQ, received critical acclaim and was a ‘Time Out Critics Choice’ in 2015. Irene was also longlisted for “Best Jazz Vocalist” at the 2022 Parliamentary Jazz Awards and was a finalist in the Shure Montreux Jazz Competition in 2009. Currently, she is working on her 5th album with ISQ and is involved in recording and touring “The Great British Songbook” project alongside Luca Boscagin. The album is scheduled for release in Autumn 2024.

Luca Boscagin – a guitarist, complements Irene’s music with his diverse background influenced by Rock and Jazz.
