Ireland’s Zrazy are an amalgamation of jazz, pop and Celtic influence. With a 20-year career full of accolades and still going strong, the duo are coming to the UK in May 2015 in promotion of their new single ‘You Make Me Happy’.
Vocalist Maria Walsh and saxophonist/pianist Carole Nelson create pure pop/dance delights, using a poetic style of Celtic lyricism combined with traditional instruments as well as funk techno electronica. Their numerous honours include various Irish Arts Council awards, top 3 winners of 2001 Billboard Song Contest in the jazz category, winners of GLAMA Award in 2000 – and a gold disc for their number one hit single ‘Ooh Ah Paul McGrath’.
