A five-piece group that infuse modern jazz with contemporary R&B, indie rock and electronic/ambient music, making for an engaging and immersive experience when performing live.
A London/Manchester-based producer. Stringing together influences from across the electronic genre (ambient to alternative), his music is a blend of harmonious synths, intricate samples and soothing vocals. Expect an impressive live performance from this multi-instrumentalist.
