Spindle Ensemble are a Bristol based contemporary chamber quartet formed in late 2016. They perform compositions by multi instrumentalist Daniel Inzani which hover cinematically between classical, jazz, world and folk idioms, influences include Maurice Ravel, Moondog, Mulatu Astatke and Charles Mingus. They are part of Bristol’s music collective Bloom (Tezeta, Yama Warashi, Count Bobo, Dubi Dolczek, Evil Usses, Leonie Evans, Alabaster dePlume, Run Logan Run).
Their debut album 'Bea' was released as a gatefold vinyl by non for profit label Adderwell Music in Nov 2017 featuring the beautiful artwork from Anna Higgie. The release and album tour was well received by critics and reviewers, played regularly on the radio including BBC Radio 6's 'Late Junction' and BBC Radio 3's 'In Tune' and included shows at Union Chapel and the Southbank Centre.

'This is cinematic music of a high calibre, executed with eloquent musicianship. Elements of classical composition, jazz harmony and folk sensibilities combine with worldly influences from Ethiopia and the Far East. This is captivating music.' Songlines magazine review of BEA, Dec 2017 ★ ★ ★ ★
'Bea is a masterful piece of work filled with musical innovation and pastoral aspiration performed by musicians at the top of their game. All in all a perfect demonstration of exciting and modern classical music.' The Arts Desk, review of BEA, Jan 2018
