Label news: Decca has first sax

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.

    This is excellent news – and superb for Jess – she is a breath of fresh air and a great ambassador for the sax. Looking forward to hearing what will be hopefully the first of many recordings.

    I think that she will be playing at the last night of the Proms.
