London sees rise of young jazz star Camilla George

Camilla George, a visionary saxophonist with a MOBO nomination under her belt, performed at the Jazz Cafe on a rainy Wednesday and it was a successful sold out event. Renowned newspaper the Guardian features Camilla George as one of the “astonishing young talents” in the Jazz world:

“It is notoriously difficult, though, to make a living in the music industry, in particular with jazz. A 2008 study on the economics of jazz found that half of jazz musicians’ total income came from live performances. Not surprisingly, a 2020 survey – mid-pandemic – conducted by Encore Musicians revealed that 64% of musicians were considering leaving the profession. Today, with audiences still below pre-pandemic levels and the cost of living crisis producing new issues, we spoke to six up and coming artists about the opportunities and obstacles for those beginning a career in jazz.”
