About

Lara has written several articles for our Jazz in Europe column and magazine including a wonderful three part article ‘Jazz Odyssey: A Tale of two Cities’ and ‘History = Herstory = Our Story. Lara is also the host for our new podcast series’ The Notes Between’ exploring the world of songwriting.

Lara Eidi is a multi – disciplinary artist, singer songwriter, storyteller  and jazz musician currently meandering between  London and Athens.  She’s performed since a young age in her hometown of Athens having started her early training at Odeo Kodaly, both as a singer and pianist and shortly after touring with her own music across Europe and the Middle East she moved to London and obtained her MMus in Jazz Voice at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since then, she’s performed and collaborated with a host of established musicians,  often culminating in a blend of her love of the simplify and beauty of folk music, to the creative freedom jazz has to offer. Sandy Brown Jazz described her as “..one of those singers who connects with the audience as soon as she starts to sing. A true gift”. Truly a world citizen, rather than draw on influences distinctly from her multi-cultural background, she draws on her life experience to create songs which seek to elevate, heal and connect with audiences and listeners alike. She’s performed to highlight a few stages in the UK and abroad, at London Folk Festival, Hampstead Jazz Club, Christ Church, Milton Court, Fete De La Musique (Beirut), Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She was featured  twice and performed  as a rising star on BBC Radio London for Th Scenes with LionHeartFelt ,  (Scenes), to which she announced her current project to date: a full-length album ‘ Home’  after releasing her two EP’s, “ Little People “ and “ Tell it like it is” that were met with rave reviews. As a performer, Lara has been portrayed as having " Streisand's clear vocal empathy yet Joni Mitchell in person, something entirely of her own accord" house of Blues.
