Joe Stilgoe 

Joe has appeared at Ronnie Scott's, the Royal Festival Hall, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Barbican, The London Jazz Festival, The Royal Albert Hall, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Edinburgh Festival (Time Out award), Henley Festival, Barbados Festival, Sardinia Jazz Festival, Sicily Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Dubai Jazz Festival and in jazz clubs from New York to Berlin to Kuala Lumpur.

He has appeared as featured soloist with orchestras including BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, The Northern Sinfonia, Lahti Symphony, Finland and the RTE Orchestra in Dublin. 

In 2011 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Fringe where his show One Hour! was a sell-out and garnered much critical acclaim (5 stars in The Scotsman). Having signed to Candid Records in 2008, he then left the label after releasing his first album 'I Like This One' to self fund his second, the 2012 released 'We Look To The Stars'. On the day of release it went straight to the top of  the jazz charts while pulling in rave reviews from the national press and attracting new fans from Tim Minchin to Chris Evans to Sir Michael Parkinson. He has recently been booked to appear at the prestigious London Jazz Festival with a new project called 'Songs On Film', to be released as a live album before a new studio album, released in 2014. With collaborations including conductor John Wilson, British jazz legend Claire Martin and comedian Alexander Armstrong, Joe's career is expanding to contain the promise that BBC Radio 2 recognised when they commissioned Joe to make his own radio show in December 2013. 'Jingle Bell Joe', an hour of  music, chat and comedy, aired on December 23rd 2013 and saw Joe  singing, playing, hosting and welcoming guests as diverse and stellar as Damian Lewis, Caro Emerald, Cerys Matthews and Tim Minchin.

As a sought after cabaret act for private, charity and corporate events he regularly performs at the most exclusive parties, for a clientele as diverse as Madonna, Mark Ronson, Sir David Frost, Prince Edward, Sir John Major and Tom Ford.

Joe has worked extensively on radio, appearing on 'The Now Show' and 'The Horne Section' for Radio 4, and has been a contributor and special guest with Terry Wogan, Richard Madeley, Michael Parkinson and numerous other Radio 2 programmes including 5  appearances on 'Friday Night Is Music Night'. He has also appeared a number of times on television, most notably in 'Never Mind The Buzzocks', and least notably in 'Bargain Hunt'.

He is a founding member of the hit comedy show, 'The Horne Section'.
