Aja & Claire Simones 

Aja : Radio Presenter, DJ, Musical Architect, Promotions.

Was a founder of The Jazz Syndicate in the early 80's, a group of young dj's exploring Jazz Music and playing venues in and around London, introducing Jazz to a growing audience. Aja along with his brother Mark took to internet radio, broadcasting on Jazz Syndicate Radio, voted one of the top internet stations in the world.
Though Aja has an extensive knowledge of Jazz, from traditional to the more left field conceptual styles, his passion has lead him on to push the boundaries of Jazz music in all it's forms, supporting new and unsigned artists/bands on his independent show 'Ketch A Vibe' which broadcasts on various radio stations around the world. Aja combines great playlists with his own unique presenting style, and is proud to have a well established listening base and wonderful support for all the new music that he introduces to a world wide audience.
Aja has developed a solid relationship with many record labels across the world, and is on the promotions list of the major Jazz Music Labels receiving brand new music weekly.
To add to this, Aja also regularly writes reviews and is a Critique. for various magazines world wide.
Here's a little bit about Claire:
Claire Simone spent 20 years performing as solo artist, recording, and appearing as a featured artist and back-up singer/harmonist with many groups. She has also performed with a number of 'Big Bands', and performed at major musical events such as Brecon Jazz Festival.
At this point in her musical career, Simone is focussed on developing and producing her own solo material, and is writing and recording with a number of musicians and producers. Claire is always looking for new projects so if you are interested in working with Claire please contact her.
