Pauline London


Pauline has an extremely versatile singing approach, mixing different styles and sonority. She performed in jazz style, showing herself for years in the most prestigious italian jazz- club, singing standards, pop songs and original compositions of her own. She is also a vocal improviser that moves from tradition of scat singing to enrich it with an interesting phrasing derived from pop, rock and ethnic music. She also teach in stages of jazz vocal and singing improvisation in Italy and other european countries.
She studied Indian music with different teachers from the south of India (Karnataka style) and the north of India (Dhrupad style,) it has enriched furtherly her interpretative and compositive ability.
Her musical influencies go from the latin american music to the greatest jazz vocalists such as Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Mel Tormé, Dianne Reeves to the most refined pop singers like Bjork, Noa.
Pauline’s personality is embellished from her personal research of integration between body, psyche and spirituality. The ten-year practicing of Bioenergetics, a psychobody technique by the american doctor A. Lowen, has developed and expanded her vocality.
Author and composer, signs a considerable number of pieces, interpreted by her and other artists. Composition process begins playing her acoustic guitar or keyboards, often starting from spontaneous improvisations on a chords progression, a sort of brainstorming to find a lot of musical fragments and recording them on an old tape-recorder. Later, on the pre-production phase the material is organized in structures and songs.
The lyrics emerge from the personal emotional “landscapes” inspired both by introspective feelings and by meeting people, books, music, natural elements and all the things that allows a positive exchange of energies.
