Wiltshire-based saxophonist and woodwind artist Vicki Watson has built a successful career playing feel-good music that radiates positivity and joy. Her infectious smile and vibrant energy make her a firm favourite with audiences, whether playing full-throttle Ibiza club classics and dance anthems or smooth, chilled-out grooves.
Bringing the dynamic range, melodic sensibility and improvisatory nature of her classical and jazz roots straight to the house music scene, Vicki masterfully combines soaring melodies, punchy rhythmic riffs and freestyle flourishes. Her sound is bold, direct and spirited, with a tonal warmth that is honest and engaging.
When she's not playing Ibiza-style club saxophone or working on small ensemble jazz projects, she's the saxophonist for The House Iguanas, a Latin-infused house music trio of DJ, saxophone and percussion, and also the musical director and lead alto for the Watson & Brown Little Big Band.
Recent highlights include a saxophone and flute residency at Hurawalhi, the Maldives, performances at venues ranging from the Gherkin and the Globe Theatre, London, to Coworth Park, the Ageas Bowl Stadium and Wilderness Festival, as well as playing for over 150 private events per year and a variety of studio recordings and session work for albums, film and gaming projects.
Vicki is also an electronic music producer and recording artist under her production name, Electro Mama, blending live clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophones and flute with percussion, music technology and sampling. She has just released her first EP, ‘Polaroid’, and is currently working on a new project, ‘Synesthesia’.
