I don’t want to say the wrong thing, which I always do. I think I do better when I sing.
— Ella Fitzgerald
 
 

Louisa Revolta is a creative whirlwind born and raised in Winchester, UK. Music has always been her passion and she performs professionally all over the world. Her specialism is in Jazz singing, scat improvisation and vocal mimicry. One highlight of her singing career was the Ella Fitzgerald Centenary concert which she performed in September 2017 to a sell out audience. Louisa’s improvisation skills have enabled her to play alto saxophone for Hed Kandi internationally and for several other club nights playing live to a DJ set. She has also played alto sax for the Tuba Libres, Head Rush and several other function bands across the south. She teaches singing, saxophone and piano and has lead and arranged music for vocal workshops and choirs.
