"Whoarethepeople is a well rounded affair that will definitely see their fanbase multiply with this rather sterling platter, highly recommended."
Angela Hughes (Jazz World)
WHOARETHEPEOPLE is a charismatic jazz soul band known for playing their own originally composed jazz mix as well as blending classic beats with sultry vocals and catchy melodies, reigniting people's passion for jazz with their own unique twist.

Heavily associated with independent label Ragtime Production their first EP “Passing Clouds” inspired by the quirky live music venue in London was soon to be followed by a live EP recorded at Ragtime Studio in Hackney Wick , blending catchy melodies, slick vocals and instrumental harmony in an intimate setting and featuring well sought after musicians Verity Guthrie, Aliocha Thevenet and Matt Findlay.
According to Cedric “ We’ve all been very blessed with the opportunity to work in an industry that people love…. and the name ‘Whoarethepeople’ is all about sharing. “
