London-based jazz vocalist and songwriter Esther Bennett has recently released her brilliant new album Home is Where the Art Is with 33 Jazz Records. The album, which Esther describes as ‘a labour of love’ explores her roots and her family along with Esther’s unique interpretations of some songs we all know and love. Esther is brilliant storyteller, as seen at her recent album launch event at Jazz Café Posk and it is always a great pleasure to talk to Esther about her experiences and rich musical influences.
