EMMA-JEAN THACKRAY // ISHMAEL ENSEMBLE // CIL
GOODS SHED 8PM
Repped by Gilles Peterson, RBMA, Sounds of The Universe and many more, rising mega-talent Emma-Jean Thackray wears many musical hats. As a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ, she is just as at home working with the London Symphony Orchestra as she is hosting her show on Worldwide FM or tearing it up on trumpet with her quartet.
Bristol’s Ishmael Ensemble draw upon jazz, electronica, downtempo and world music to tiptoe between the current British jazz boom and Bristol's rich musical ancestry. The group have found a truly unique and refreshing voice.
CIL is Cecilia Morgan ; Ambient artist from South East London, signed to South Space Records. https://www.mixcloud.com/cecilia-morgan/
FOOTSHOOTER // VELS TRIO // MAXWELL OWIN
SVA, 4 JOHN STREET, STROUD
Footshooter is the moniker of London based producer, DJ and musician Barney Whittaker. His style blends skippy, broken beat production with live instrumentation to create an organic, rich sound and he frequently collaborates with emcees, poets and vocalists exploring different tones and moods.
It’s been exciting early days for Brighton based experimental group Vels Trio (keys player Jack Stephenson Oliver, bassist Cameron Dawson and drummer Dougal Taylor) since meeting in 2014.
Being almost indistinguishable by any sole genre, the group’s mutual loves and individual fortes across prog, electronic, jazz, funk and hip-hop has paved the collective way for their early sound.
With a keen desire in improvisation, Vels Trio’s sound can be characterised by their heavy grooves, emotionally charged songwriting, coupled alongside expressive, progressive modern musicianship to create an excitingly frenetic, and irresistibly engaging live sound structures.
As a producer, Maxwell Owin's credits are seemingly endless. He’s at the electronic and spiritual heart of so many of London’s brilliant jazz and improvisation based projects – from mixing Where Pathways Meet, to doing the mastering on the We Out Here film, to collaborating with Joe Armon-Jones in their outstanding record IDIOM.
