Taupe are a Newcastle upon Tyne based trio specialising in razor-sharp polyrhythmic play, exploratory improvisation and raw live performance.

They were selected for the 2017 roster of the prestigious 12 Points Festival, performing in Aarhus, Denmark, and were 2016-17 ambassador artists on Jazz North's Northern Line programme. They keep themselves busy with a programme including outings throughout the UK and Europe as well as airtime on BBC Radio 3's Late Junction, Stuart Maconie's Freak Zone and RTÉ Lyric FM's Nova.

'Violent freedom lies in the soaring assurance of their manic riff-delivery'

- All About Jazz.

'A fierce trio balancing blast and groove with clear punctuation'

SNAZZBACK

™™™™™™™™™

Formed in 2016 while busking on the streets of Bristol, Snazzback have spent the last 2 years forging their unique sound which effortlessly blends jazz, afrobeat, hip-hop and electronica into a cosmic melting pot. Drawing inspiration from their comrades in the UK jazz revival, Snazzback have been playing relentlessly across the country helping build their reputation as one of the City's most exciting acts. Whilst their new album’s considered arrangements demonstrate their musical diligence, fiery improvisation remains at the heart of the band’s ethos.

BRAZEN HEAD

™™™™™™™™™™

“Muscular, well developed playing... somewhere between Johnny Hodges and Dudu Pukwana.” – Phillip Clarke, The Wire

Intense free-form duo of Tim Hill & drummer tbc. Tim plays the saxophone and makes noise drawing on free improvisation, grooves, electronica, composition, traditional music and ritual sound. He often works out of doors in street bands, performances and rituals.

Since the 1980s he has played with improvisers like Mike Cooper, Paul Burwell, Steve Noble, John Edwards and Derek Bailey.

Brazen Head is also the name of a label run by Tim releasing sound myths, free improvisation, electronica and more.
