Shirley Kent began her singing career at the tender age of 15. She has appeared on Radio,Television and Records. Her career has encompassed the musical spectrum, Folk, Rock and Popular music. But it is her love for Jazz that has seasoned her style.

In 1970 she was a member of the UK band
THE GHOST . A Progressive Rock Band. With Ghost and as a solo artist, she appeared on the John Peel BBC programme SOUND OF THE SEVENTIES.
Information about those sessions can be found in the Ken Garner book IN SESSION TONIGHT . You can also find information about The Ghost and Shirley in the 2018 RECORD COLLECTOR Rare Record Price Guide.

Later she would return to the jazz scene to play second on the bill to Stephane Grappelli, Oscar Peterson, Buddy Rich, Woody Herman, Roland Kirk and far too many to list here.

Award winning songwriter. Author of the successful "Guide To Popular Singing".
I now have a concsie guide in ebook format called'"How to Sing" which I give to students after a 10 week block booking.

What T - Shirt

My biog tells it all really. I started professional singing at the age of 15, I learned my skill and art from "bieng on stage". I have performed pop to jazz. Experienced solo performance, singing with duo's, trios, bands, groups. Appeared on television, Radio, Records. I have had my own small record labels, and I am a published songwriter. I still write and record today. I encourage people to write songs, and have a Christmas song competition going now for my students.

I love all kinds of music. I have students working on opera songs, theatre songs and songs from the Top Ten of the day. I love the variety.
