"Trinity Buoy Wharf Live!" presents Jazz Wednesdays featuring Ms Maurice (Sheila Maurice-Grey Quintet) – “Opening our 2020 series with great organic grooves and spicy sonic seasoning”


Ms Maurice, also known as Sheila Maurice-Grey, is a London-based trumpeter, vocalist and visual artist. 

Ms Maurice brings her melange of influences from organic grooves infused with 70’s jazz and a touch of West African sonic seasoning. These sounds are heavily influenced by her London upbringing.

Central to Ms Maurice's music is her visual art practice where she aims to question her 'identity' as well as what it means 'to misrepresent vs to be misrepresented.' Her art provocatively explores the notion of ‘blackness’ and the hyper sexualisation of the black female body throughout history since the early 1800’s. In particular she is interested in the visual history and facts known about ‘Blackface Minstrelsy’ and ‘The Hottentot Venus - Sarah Bartmann.’


Ms Maurice is also bandleader of KOKOROKO and plays with jazz septet Nérija, who were nominated for Jazz FM Breakthrough Act 2016 and Parliamentary Jazz Newcomer of Year 2017 winner. She has performed with the likes of SOLANGE, KANO on the ‘Jool’s Holland Show’ and ‘The Mercury Prize 2016,’ and features on Little SIMZ’s album ‘Stillness in Wonderland.’
