Recipients of a coveted ‘Jazz North Introduces’ selection in 2018, this exciting young crossover band from Manchester stretch the boundaries of jazz with a modern, experimental indie sound. Jazz North Introduces offers young musicians under 25 their first high profile showcase opportunities at major jazz festivals with their selection panel prioritising musical excellence in terms of musicianship, creativity, innovation and potential.

Their dynamic music draws influence from a range of sources such as Esbjorn Svensson Trio, Impossible Gentlemen, and Radiohead, giving a depth of sound to delicately constructed pieces that read like a contemplative journey through an anxious mind.

Their highly emotive original compositions produce abstract soundscapes that bring deep, moody basslines to dance around singing guitar and allow for space improvise freely during live performances. This is an introspective and gentle form of jazz fusion, careful not to wind itself into a messy web and never wasting a note.

You can continue to support us and the professional musicians who are struggling right now, by donating what you might usually spend on an entry fee or a drink, or any other amount that you wish. Professional musicians and all hospitality/event staff are facing an incredibly difficult time, having seen months of steady work disappear over-night. Any donations would be extremely appreciated to help us to continue to pay our staff through our closure and support our local event staff community in any way that we can.
