Malcolm McNeill with the Mike Walker Trio

Malcolm McNeill has long been considered one of New Zealand's finest jazz singers. For over 30 years his unique artistry and intelligent approach have earned him the enthusiastic and loyal following of aficionados both in his own country and around the world.

Growing up in Christchurch, New Zealand, he sought out from an early age the recordings that caught his ear: singers such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Mel Torme and instrumentalists like Bird, Dizzy, Oscar Peterson and other jazz greats. On New Zealand radio, jazz was not often heard or played back then, and Malcolm became, literally, a unique voice – pioneering the sound of vocal jazz in New Zealand's music scene.

With 9 recordings to his credit - Malcolm is a top selling New Zealand artist. He is the only artist to have recorded a popular duet album with acclaimed Opera Diva Kiri Te Kanawa - for which he wrote the title song "Heart to Heart". The album made the American Billboard best seller list for a "cross-over" recording. Dame Kiri says of Malcolm that "he is in his own right - a great artist".

Malcolm will be backed by The Mike Walker Trio - recently this group was awarded Variety Artists Club "group of the year" award 2011. The band comprises Mike on piano, Frank Gibson drums and Pete McGregor bass
