The Queen of Lovers’ Rock, Carroll Thompson, headlines another show in London


By Music Desk 


Thursday, March 17, 2022.



On Wednesday 6th April legendary singer Carroll Thompson  will perform at the Pizza Express Jazz Room, Dean Street, in Soho, London, with material from ‘British Standard Time’, a jazz celebration of UK songwriting.  She will be performing with the Alex Webb group and the remarkable up-and-coming male vocalist Freddie Benedict. 


Ms Thompson has long been a major figure in the British Black Music scene. Regarded by many as the Queen of Lovers' Rock - a subgenre of Reggae, in 1981 she released her independent debut album Hopelessly in Love, selling over a million copies worldwide.  She won two GLR Reggae Awards in 1982, for Best Female Performer and Best Song, and in 1983 again won the GLR Best Female Performer award. She has duetted with Sugar Minott (‘Make It With You’) and Trevor Walters (‘Love Won't Let Us Wait’) and recorded with Aswad and Courtney Pine.  She also enjoyed chart hits with Movement 98's ‘Joy & Heartbreak’ and ‘Sunrise’.  In 1992, her ‘Let the Music Play’ was included on the Oscar/Grammy nominated and BAFTA winner soundtrack to the film The Crying Game


In recent years, she has turned her attention to jazz, and recorded four vocal tracks on the Alex Webb album British Standard Time. The album was released in January 2022, and was a JazzFM Album Of The Week, and has since won rave reviews.
