Jamie Cullum is to perform on 14 July in História Garden (venue in event of rain: Veszprém Arena). Cullum, considered to be the United Kingdom’s best jazz artist of all time, visited Veszprém back in 2016 when he performed an unforgettable concert at the Veszprém Aréna, the musician’s first ever show in Hungary.
The forty-year-old artist, who offers a unique combination of jazz, pop and rock, has performed at prestigious locations such as the Hollywood Bowl and the Carnegie Hall, at Fuji Rock and Glastonbury, and he has also shared the stage with names like Amy Winehouse and Billy Joel. He is not only successful as a performer, but as a composer too: he has composed for films of John Cucask and Clint Eastwood.
Cullum has released 8 studio albums, of which more than 10 million copies have been sold. His last studio album entitled Taller was released in 2019, and in 2020 he surprised his fans with his first ever Christmas album entitled The Pianoman at Christmas.
Besides his stage career, he works as a radio host: he currently has a prime-time, award-winning weekly show on BBC Radio 2, Europe’s most popular radio station, where as the DJ he introduced jazz stars such as Gregory Porter or Laura Mvula to his audience.
