Jazz quartet videos, hip-hop track & more!

A track I co-produced with hip-hop pioneer The Last Skeptik was recently released on his beat-tape vol. 2. Stream it on Spotify by clicking on the picture.

Your Beat Tape Sucks, Vol. 2

My new record label, Turquoise Coconut, has released its first two albums, both from my contemporary violin duo Mainly Two (keeping it in the family for the meantime!). We first released Poetry / Synergy independently in 2014, so we’re delighted to be bringing them to a bigger audience via the wonderful world wide web.

Also on the releases side, the début recording from Four Plus Three, a collaboration between The Kate Williams Trio and The Guastalla Quartet, will be launched at the 606 Club next week, June 8th. It features some beautiful originals and arrangements by prominent jazz pianist and composer Kate Williams. Here’s the tour schedule:

Lastly, my jazz quartet has been pleasantly busy of late, so we’ve had the chance to get a few up-to-date videos and photos together. Here’s a small selection. Many thanks to Carla Rees for the wonderful shots.

Turquoise Coconut

I’m overjoyed to announce my new musical adventure. Marie Schreer and I have just founded Turquoise Coconut, a record label dedicated to new music and independent artists. Our first offerings will be digital re-releases of our Mainly Two début albums Poetry & Synergy, recorded in 2014. I look forward to sharing some wonderful music with you all in the future. Watch out on May 20th & 27th! Keep life colourful.
