Aisha Khan sings American roots music, Jazz, Blues and Rhythm & Blues of the 1940’s/50’s. With a nod to the glamour and sophistication of a bygone era and over 25 years of experience, coupled with an unrivalled passion for the music, she combines outstanding original material with powerful cover versions and performs them all with class, soul, talent and wit. Equal Parts sultry Jazz chanteuse and Rhythm and Blues belter, Aisha easily communicates heartbreak, joy and a range of emotions in between, continuing to honour the tradition of the true Divas. Aisha’s earliest influences incorporated everything from Elvis and Sarah Vaughan to Billy Bragg and Northern Soul. Naturally drawn to London’s incendiary Rockabilly club scene, she felt the irresistible pull of black American Rhythm & Blues as a call to action, setting up her first band Tiger Lily and the Jitterbugs, with which she performed throughout the UK and Europe for several years at Jazz, Blues and Rock & Roll festivals, clubs and events. She also performed at many private events, including supporting Dame Shirley Bassey before Prince Charles at Highgrove. Subsequently, she was the first vocalist with the 10 piece big band, Blue Harlem performing Swing and Jump Jive. She has sung with Richard Berry, James Hunter and Mike Sanchez, amongst others. She is currently working in England and Europe with ongoing Projects in Spain and London. Recent performances include events with the Aisha Khan R&B Revue, Blue Harlem, Cherry Casino & the Gamblers, Robert Gordon and the Barcelona Big Blues Band with Paul Ansell. Her debut solo album on El Toro records is now available on digital download and CD. Titled ‘Aishaddiction’, it’s packed full of stunning original material ranging from Doo Wop to Calypso and features outstanding musicianship plus special guests! Aisha is an accomplished songwriter and currently has songs recorded and released by Japanese and Spanish Roots Music artists. She is also involved with specialist record labels writing biographies and liner notes for many different compilations and releases, in addition to writing music articles. “Aisha was and is like ‘Gilda’…radiating glamour, exuding femininity, talent, beauty, tenderness, voice and attitude. She’s…without doubt, one of the best kept secrets of the United Kingdom.” (El Ritual Nocturno Radio Show).

We invited Aisha Khan back to the Verdict because her first performance was such a success. this time she performed with her new show For Adults Only, which was a collection of risque Jazz and Blues from the 1940's to the 50's. Aisha has a wonderful, authentic voice and looks the part of a glamorous diva. she interacts beautifully with the audience, who adore her. We are already looking forward to having her back at the Verdict Jazz club, where she gathers new fans with every visit.

Aisha Khan and the Rajahs played a high energy set of authentic Rhythm & Blues at the Christmas Special Roots Sisters Reunion as the headline act. Performing many original songs from her album plus Blues classics, she and her brilliant band made the party go with a swing. She's a powerful singer and an exciting performer, with old style diva glamour, a wonderful act!
