Liane Carroll (born 9 February 1964 in London) is an English pianist/vocalist who lives in Hastings, East Sussex.
The Observer's jazz critic Dave Gelly has described her as "one of the most stylistically flexible pianists around, with a marvellous, slightly husky singing voice". According to The Guardian's jazz critic John Fordham she is "a powerful, soul-inflected performer with an Ella Fitzgerald-like improv athleticism and an emotional frankness on ballads". Nick Hasted of The Independent says that she is "still frustratingly little-known" but calls her "one of Britain’s most emotionally visceral and accomplished singers".
Carroll has worked with many artists ranging from Sir Paul McCartney and Gerry Rafferty to Ladysmith Black Mambazo. She has also performed as the lead vocalist and Wurlitzer keyboardist for the drum and bass band London Elektricity. She is a regular performer at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the 606 Club in London, and has made several albums. In addition to performing, Carroll also teaches at jazz summer schools in the UK and Europe and also conducts workshops.
