Jules began singing with a jazz trio aged 15 and has never looked back!

He went on to sing with the Cambridge University Jazz Orchestra, winning a gold medal at the National Big Band competition. He studied blues cultures and composition as part of his music degree at Cambridge, and founded and directed the Jules Chou-Lambert quartet, featuring top young jazz musicians including Tom Millar, Liam Dunachie and Misha Mullov-Abbado.

Jules continued his training with Nia Lynn at the Royal Academy of Music, where he sang regularly with the Royal Academy big band and jazz legend Keith Nichols. He recently premiered new Protest songs as part of the The Art of Chaos festival at the Ditch, Shoreditch Town Hall.

He enjoys singing everything from his own compositions and other contemporary jazz to soul, swing and Latin standards and electro-swing.

Influences include Bessie Smith, Mel Tormé, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Chet Baker, Frank Sinatra, Ian Shaw, Amy Winehouse and Bilal.
