Verified profile

Royal Blue duo is a stylish young jazz / soul duo offering an extensive repertoire of jazz, swing blues and contemporary. Their repertoire of carefully chosen songs is tailor made to every audience to create the perfect ambience; mixing classic jazz standards with contemporary pop songs, all beautifully rearranged into a soulful style that blends well with their naturally soulful voices. Their sets are beautifully delivered with luxurious harmonies and topped off with a stunning vocal delivery. The duo is formed of singer Jessica Melody and pianist/ vocalist James Salvador. Based in London and Cardiff, Royal Blue are both music graduates and full-time musicians performing across the UK. James originally studied classical piano at the Royal Welsh College of Music but is a multi-faceted pianist / vocalist and songwriter who is currently writing a soul/pop album with his band SALDIVAR. Jessica trained in contemporary vocals and has over 8+ experience working in bands, singing in contracts abroad and as a session and soul singer in both Cardiff and London. Friendly and personable, both Jess & James have experience with teaching and leading community and dementia choirs. While both busy musicians in their own right, when they come together, a beautiful soul fusion is created with powerful vocals, virtuoso piano and a lively stage presence. They bring all of their collective passion, experience and love for music together to create a truly entertaining and unforgettable show!

Jessica G, 1 year ago

Jessica and James brought a great variety of music whilst working in the Jools Holland club. They played to suit their audience each night and interacted well with guests. We had great feedback from our loyal Clientele. The pair were great to work with and very flexible with their genres. Both easy going and down to earth, they understood the concept of cruising and what it’s all about for our guests.

After a long career in music radio as a presenter and programmer it's always refreshing to see ‘live’ music at it’s best. I did not expect to find it on a ship but James and Jess delivered on every level. Great playing, different arrangements and superb vocals and harmonies. Highly recommend.
