Renowned for her big tenor saxophone sound and ‘gorgeous phrases’ (London jazz news) Fliss is a lively, enthusiastic band leader, Fliss was thrilled to join the Father John Misty Band for their headline performance on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury 2017 and further UK tour dates throughout 2017/18/19.
