About Ms Maurice

Ms Maurice, also known as Sheila Maurice-Grey, is a London based trumpeter, vocalist and visual artist. Central to Ms Maurice’s music, is stimulated by her visual art practice where she aims to question her ‘identity’ as well as what it means ‘to misrepresent vs to be misrepresented.’

Ms Maurice has performed and worked with the likes of KANO, Little Simz, Loyle Carner, Kwes. and many more. Whilst being band leader of KOKOROKO, Ms Maurice is also a core member of NÉRIJA, SEED ensemble, New Purple Celebration many others.


About Jazz Herstory

Jazz Herstory presents female led bands playing jazz now, spanning styles, sounds and generations. Showcasing the richness of jazz being made in the UK today and celebrating the women who contribute, Jazz Herstory presents award winning bands and instrumentalists, composers of national and international acclaim and people making waves locally.

They aim to share: to bring women from the background to a balanced foreground in jazz. Female instrumentalists have not been part of the story of jazz as much as their male counterparts and we want to play a part in writing a more balanced story from here on in and dissolve stereotypes in the process.
