DJ Sapphire grew up in Derby and moved to London in 1994 and her music career started in 1996 when she joined her first band, thanks to her boss at that time, Roger Bolt. She sang with them for 10 years. She joined General Skank in 2014. Her DJing career started in 2013 (uploading mixes to Soundcloud and playing at various bars and restaurants). The first Smooth Jazz Lounge was born in Tottenham in October 2015 and now, in these uprecedented times, the Smooth Jazz Lounge takes place via Zoom.
In May 2017, DJ Sapphire went live on the radio, on Real Music FM, in May 2017 playing the best in Smooth Urban Contemporary Jazz. Now she is a presenter on London's number one soul station, The Soul of London and Atlanta based station 1XL Radio.
DJ Sapphire is the founder and host of the Smooth Jazz Lounge. Since starting in Tottenham in 2015, she now hosts this night at many venues in and around London. Being a huge fan of Smooth Jazz, she wanted a place for people to attend where they can sit back and chill and listen to live music.
She was given the Unsung Women's Award in March 2018 for her "outstanding contribution to the community" because of the Jazz Lounge.
I was also a singer in General Skank reggae band, started by Stef and Rich in 2014. I host a Reggae Lounge at various venues.
Live reggae is not heard so much, unless you go to concerts of well known artists, so starting this night has brought together both legendary artists and up and coming artists.
Join DJ Sapphire every Monday 1-3pm and every Thursday 6-8pm for her Smooth Jazz & Soul Show. Since lockdown, April 2020, DJ Sapphire has been broadcasting her shows live on Mixcloud and Facebook and it has become a very popular show attracting followers all over the world.
DJ Sapphire was approached by Atlanta based radio station 1 Excel Radio and she also does a show every Sunday from 4-6pm, playing the best in Smooth Jazz, Reggae Jazz & Soul.
