Great show, very enthusiastically received!
Response: Thank you Richard & Doug. It was an absolute pleasure performing my London debut gig via Richard Douglas Productions x
Just wanted to thank you for your contribution to the Foyer Programme at this year's festival.
We plan this part of the festival programme to represent the best of Bristol and the South West region's talent, and we certainly met that goal with your band's introduction to the Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival.
Leading your band as both vocalist and saxophonist was exciting to watch and immediately won applause of the large audience. Your energy as both a musician and performer does more than justice to the standards you offer, and the songs that you have composed fit beautifully with the arrangements that you have given to those standards.
I wish you well with your touring plan and congratulate a talent that has come to the profession later than usual. Perhaps that is why you have so much to offer.

Response: Thank you very much Colin. It was amazing to be part of such a fantastic festival that celebrates such a diverse range of talent. Well done to you, Denny Ilett, Katya Gorrie and all the team for such a great festival. Here's to the 2018 festival!
A great performance from Kim Cypher and Lee Jones at the Roses, Tewkesbury in the Sunday lunchtime jazz slot! Kim combines a very fluent tenor, alto and soprano sax style with a lovely voice, and her guitarist, Lee Jones was excellent. From 'Summertime' to 'Careless Whisper' it was a well chosen set, and top quality all the way.
Response: Thank you so much Keith for the lovely review and thank you fro coming along to support the event. It was a really lovely gig and we really enjoyed it x
Having seen Kim play with a small band and as a duo with the excellent Lee Jones, I wondered how the breadth of her playing and singing style and the wide range of material she chooses would be covered in her debut CD. The answer is very well indeed! Half the compositions are Kim's own, and the rest are carefully curated covers. She chooses her fellow musicians very well and they all have a real feel for the music, from genuinely creative interpretations of 'Imagine', 'Tainted love' and 'You'd be so nice to come home to', to the blues shuffle of 'Upper West Side Blues'. I really enjoyed the quality and variety of this CD, and how Kim's talent and enthusiasm that you see at a gig comes across so well. A very impressive debut!
@KimCypher eased thro' rhythmical orig material and jazz standards, w innovative twists last nite @BakerStreetSwin. Well balanced quintet.
Response: Thank you for this great review on Twitter
"Thank you KIm and Sexy Boys for a WOOOONDERFUL NIGHT we had sooo many compliments about you...one lady said.. 'I only came to support your charity.. I don't even like Jazz... but I loved this!' Dave would have enjoyed it too and all the lovely things you said and songs you sang for him. Bless you."
Response: Thank you Rosa, it was such a privilege performing for such a worthwhile event. I hope to see you again soon x
Last month's jam with Kim Cypher was Stroud Jazz Sessions at its tip-top sensational finest - one of our best buzzes yet, many new faces and with the stage positively bustling for jammers. Thank you Kim for that, and thank you for your fantastic performance. Support Kim where you can.
Response: Thanks so much Tommy, I really appreciate your kind words. It was a great night and I was thrilled to be featured as your special guest. The amazing support from everyone who came along and those who took part in the amazing jam session was truly overwhelming. My thanks to everyone xx
Saxophonist of great talent and personality - one to be watched! Looking forward to hearing more. Good luck with the album Kim
Response: Thanks so much Richard x
I had heard that the Kim Cypher Band were good, and now I've seen for myself. Who else can get a crowd of people from 3 years old to 70 dancing in the early afternoon? With songs old and new, delivered in stunning studio quality, the band's friendly vibe was infectious and left everyone with the feel-good factor for the rest of the weekend. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kim and the band for your party or special occasion. They are not only highly professional, they are the nicest bunch of musicians you could meet.
Response: Wow, thanks so much Sali. It was an absolute pleasure being part of your event arranged by IWork4UGlos. Thank you for involving us and I look forward to working with you all again soon x
You brought the place to life Kim, my thanks – I’ve even been getting emails today from rain-drenched locals who were walking through, having to dash home, but emailed this morning to say how they’d like to have been able to attend, to boost the already strong throng of folks who were enjoying it. You brought warmth to a chilly, wet Winter’s evening
Response: Thanks so much Max, I really appreciate you taking the time to send in your lovely comments, very touched indeed. Thank you! x
