She is also responsible for the monthly Jelly's Jams night at Brixton's The Windmill and hosts a radio show on internet radio station Why Now World.She has announced her new spiritual jazz project 'Jelly Cleaver and the Forever Presence', signed to taste - maker independent label Gearbox Records. Their debut EP is due for digital and vinyl release in November 2021. In the excitement and movement of the London jazz scene, The Forever Presence takes the neglected elements of ballads and beauty, allowing other emotions to come into the music. The ballad is a timeless form in jazz history explored by all the greats, but it's added to with subtle modern techniques to reflect our timeless but modern problems. It pays tribute to artists like Pharaoh Sanders, Alice Coltrane and Dhafer Youssef. These are songs about loss, love and the universe
