Luca Manning is an award winning Jazz vocalist and songwriter from Glasgow, Scotland. He is inspired by a wide range of artists and musical styles, as well as being firmly rooted in the tradition of jazz.

Now based in London, Luca has just finished his second year on the jazz degree at the Guildhall School of Music. He has already played major London venues such as Pizza Express Jazz Club and Ronnie Scott’s leading his own ensembles and featuring as a guest with renowned singers such as Liane Carroll and Ian Shaw. Luca was honoured to win the rising star award at the 2018 Scottish Jazz Awards and is now anticipating the release of his first album : “when the sun comes out” which features Scottish pianist Fergus McCreadie and special guest saxophonist, Laura Macdonald.
