Anthony Strong at the CCB on March 27th

After the resounding success of his debut in Portugal, at the CCB, in April 2014, Anthony Strong is scheduled to return to this Lisbon venue for a show that appeals to everyone!

Hailed as “England’s new jazz superstar”, a support slot with the legendary BB King and an EP release which reached #1 on the UK jazz charts saw singer-pianist Anthony Strong grab the attention of some of the world’s top record labels in early 2012.


His debut album 'Guaranteed!' was released in the summer of 2009 and the band featured 8 of his best friends – who just happened to be some of the finest jazz musicians in London! On top of this, friend and singer Natalie Williams made a guest appearance. The launch saw over 300 people squeeze into private members club Shoreditch House and a panicking bar manager shut the doors and turn the rest away.

After signing with Naïve in the autumn of 2012, Anthony set to work arranging and recording his new album which features, amongst others, Australian trumpeter James Morrison, British saxophone legend Nigel Hitchcock, drummer Sebastian De Krom and bassist Tom Farmer, along with a horn section and string section. The result, 'Stepping Out', is available now and features a mix of classic jazz songs and swinging originals.

Anthony Strong returns to the CCB for a show, featuring Claudia Franco, who will be in charge of the concert’s 1st half.
