From a press release:
Jess Gillam, 19, has signed an exclusive recording deal with Decca Classics – becoming the first saxophone player to join the historic label. She will enter the recording studio for Decca for the first time later this year.
Hailing from Ulverston in Cumbria, Jess first caught the public eye during BBC Young Musician 2016 when, at the age of 17, she was the first saxophonist to reach the final of the competition – wowing audiences with her performance of Michael Nyman’s Where the Bee Dances.
