Born into the most wonderful Anglo-Italian family where music, food and wine -- and ice-cream! - were the basic stuff of life, Edana has been singing forever. In the last five years she has established herself as a successful jazz performer, regularly playing to full houses in England and Italy. Festival performances include the Isle of Wight Jazz Festival and Jazz on the Meadow, in support of Courtney Pine.
Edana's debut CD, Still On My Feet, was released in November 2011. Featured musicians include Guy Barker, Guillermo Rozenthuler & James McMillan -- and the magnificent Liane Carroll on backing vocals!
Still On My Feet is dedicated to all Edana's much loved family, and to her brother Anthony especially. Anthony was the multi-talented, Oscar-winning film director who died at the age of 54 in 2008. Two of the tunes on the album were featured on the soundtrack of two of Anthony's films: A Case of You, was in Truly Madly Deeply, and You Don't Know What Love Is featured in The Talented Mr Ripley.
Edana made her second album, All or Nothing, as a tribute to one of the most influential jazz vocalists of all time, the great Billie Holiday. The album is a collection of some of the songs the made famous and some less well known tunes, many of which Billie co-wrote.
Both albums were produced by Liane Carroll and engineered by James McMillan, at Quiet Money Studios, Hastings.
