"The group has a lot of character"
" her words are quite poignant, but also have an element of angst; Wilkins conveys these feelings with confidence and charm"
"an attractive voice, equally strong on the wordless improvisations as on the songs with words"

OLIVIA MURPHY'S TOMORROW SONGS
Olivia Murphy's tomorrow songs are a brand new set of short, interlinked pieces performed by Murphy, Becca Wilkins and Olly Chalk. This brand new set of works was originally debuted as part of a set of commissions from Around the Houses Festival with support from Tony Dudley-Evans and Stoney Lane Records. These songs were premiered exclusively in August 2020 from Jazzwise Magazine's facebook page to celebrate the launch of Stoney Lane's not-for-profit patreon page. In June 2021, Olivia released these songs in a remixed short album, available on Bandcamp and other streaming platforms.
It was a pleasure to be mentioned alongside some truly amazing and inspiring vocalists in a recent article by Tony Dudley-Evans: Six Contemporary Vocalists in Jazz.
