Roy Forbes

Roy Forbes is known to Birmingham festival audiences as a dynamic and exciting singer who has built a great reputation in the city over some years as well as appearing (and recording at) London’s Jazz Cafe and the Stables, Wavendon, and taking in other festivals as distant as Milan and St. Lucia, plus high-profile events nearer home such as Brecon, Cork and Soho. Roy began his jazz career with Andy Hamilton and now has appeared with such notables as Larry Coryell, David Murray, Al Casey, Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison, Jean Toussaint, Dudu Pukwana and many others.
The Birmingham Mail wrote about Roy’s performance in the 2011 jazzfest “Is there a better male jazz singer in this country? Probably not. Roy Forbes is a master of his trade”.
