Offering a unique combination of jazz, pop and rock, JAMIE CULLUM, the UK’s most successful jazz artist ever, will perform at VeszprémFest on 12 July. The British artist defines himself primarily as a pianist/singer, but he is also an excellent drummer and guitarist. Throughout his career, he has performed at prestigious locations such as the Hollywood Bowl and the Carnegie Hall, at Fuji Rock and Glastonbury, and he also joined several renowned jazz artists at the 2016 International Jazz Day at the White House. He shared the stage with exceptional performers such as 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 Cusack and Clint Eastwood. He has released 9 studio albums, selling over 10 million copies. His last album was released in 2020, which was 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.
Jamie Cullum visited Veszprém back in 2016 when he performed an unforgettable concert at the Veszprém Aréna, the musician’s first ever show in Hungary.
