Atila is an established Jazz singer from the UK. Sartorially stylish and musically classy, his interpretations of the American Songbook are internationally renowned, taking influence from early Frank Sinatra.
Atila began music professionally aged 15 with local big band ‘Young Jazz’. First playing saxophone, but then encouraged by Phil Revens to sing, Atila was at ease in front of the big band. He was invited by Bill Ashton to feature with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in 2002.
Atila learned his craft with NYJO, following extensive UK touring he fronted the group on the Norwegian Sun Jazz Cruise, with special guests Benny Golson and Curtis Fuller.
Then followed an album with NYJO. ‘Something Old, Something New’ (NYJCD023) was something of a debut record for Atila, and his performance being described by All about jazz; “he’s only a step or two away from becoming one of the finest young jazz singers to emerge in quite some time”
Atila’s first release under his own name was ‘How Do You Keep the Music Playing’ co-produced by conductor and arranger Evan Jolly. The 2005 album has tracks featuring small band, conventional big band and 64-piece orchestra.
In 2006 Atila met and toured with the legendary Buddy Greco. Buddy said, “I was knocked out by Atila. He has the voice and the class to show the world what great music is all about”.
Buddy added to this by handing Atila his library of big band music from the tour, then inviting him to Cathedral City (Palm Desert) to sing at his own club ‘Buddy Grecos’ the following autumn. Whilst there Buddy told him “No matter what happens just keep going, someone’s gotta take over when I’m gone. You’re gonna be a star kid”.
