This intense and thrilling band represents the front rank of the
contemporary UK jazz scene. Lauded for her imaginative approach
to improvisation and composition, Clowes provides her bandmates
Ross Stanley (piano/Hammond organ), Chris Montague (guitar) and
James Maddren (drums) with a unique platform for individual expression,
delivering driving grooves and lingering melodic lines, seamlessly
morphing between earthy restlessness and futuristic dreamscapes.
Since their album release in early 2017 the band have already
toured and performed in the UK, Ireland and Germany, winning over
fans and critics wherever they go. Past appearances include; The
Barbican, EFG London Jazz Festival, the National Opera House (Wexford),
Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Turner Sims (Southampton)
and Stadthaus Ulm (Germany), with broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and
Radio Bremen (Germany).
