South African born and bred vocalist and violinist, Fem Belling is a rising star on the international jazz scene and has become one of Australia’s most formidable and in demand performers. Her African Jazz and theatre roots augment her unique musicality, choices and interpretations.
The jazz world hums with ubiquitous young singers revisiting the great American songbook. Then one comes along with stagecraft and an instrumentalist’s refrain. Fem Belling is an award winning West End leading lady with a spectacular breadth of range. A master force on old repertory bringing ideas from all angles to the familiar art of standard’s-singing. With a sophisticated palate embracing unexpected genres, Fem has an energetic appetite for braiding musical styles. Fem shot to international attention when she turned all four chairs on ‘The Voice’ with Ricky Martin, Jessie J and Delta Goodrem fighting for the chance to mentor her. Jessie J won out, saying she has been “waiting for someone like this”.
Hailing from a musical dynasty, music in her blood, she has performed with many jazz greats, locally and internationally. Appearing with her own band, collaborations and residencies at Ronnie Scotts (Ldn), Bennett’s Lane and the MIJF.
