Straight from the ‘Cool School’ of Chet Baker, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra & Mel Tormé comes the stylish, swinging voice of Iain Mackenzie.
Iain performs classic Jazz & Swing standards with golden era charm, and a contemporary edge.
Coming from a pedigree of great British jazz musicians to have passed through the Guildhall School of Music, Iain Mackenzie is one of the top jazz and big band singers in the country. Having worked with the Pasadena Roof Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the BBC Big Band, Iain is currently the principle male vocalist for the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra, and section leader for the Ronnie Scott’s Singers - The iTones.
Iain’s voice is featured on a vast amount of publicity and adverts, including ‘Welcome Home’ - the latest T-Mobile advert at Terminal 5, and on a number of film soundtracks, including the British comedy ‘Grow Your Own’. He has just completed a UK tour, singing for Brendon Cole’s (‘Strictly Come Dancing’) Live and Unjudged show – touring again with Brendan's new show - Licence To Thrill - in January and February 2013...
Iain works widely with vocal groups including Voxtet, The Magnets, The New London Jazz Voices, The Tim Whitehead group, The Kenny Wheeler Mirror Suite, and with South African jazz pianist legend, Abdullah Ibrahim. Other credits include Sandie Shaw, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Joss Stone and Mica Paris.
Iain’s original material with Club Des Belugas and Chinchin records is featured on over 50 chill out and lounge compilations, and his jazz album ’Twice On Sunday’ was released by Jazzizit Records in 2007.
