Trudy moved to London in 1990 from her native Australia and, whilst continuing to gig regularly, worked during the day as secretary for popular clarinettist Acker Bilk. She took time out to study jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and in 1995 got her musical career break when Ronnie Scott offered her a week at his club. "Australian expatriate Trudy Kerr is another artist who understands the importance of seducing the public. A combination of artful programming and assured arrangements has made her one of the country's most polished singers" - Clive Davis, The Times. "..Trudy Kerr is outstanding, imaginative but respectful to the original song, with excellent phrasing and diction and a smile in her voice"- Dave Gelly, The Observer.
