We are a new Edinburgh based jazz-fusion band writing and performing original music. Our project is unique as each band member comes from a different musical and cultural background, allowing us to make a new form of jazz that I genuinely believe could enrich the Scottish jazz scene and perhaps motivate more young people to get into music and jazz. It most definitely challenges us as musicians, and provides us with an incredible opportunity to perform original music around the UK and maybe even the world.
We have a wonderful production team behind us, the members of which are all ready to go for the creation and promotion of an album. We have our very own sound engineer/producer that will record and master the tracks, a marketing manager/graphic designer that can create original graphic work to promote the album, video producer that can help create a more interactive form of promotion online, a manager that helps organise gigs and rehearsals, and, of course, 4 musicians (guitar, guitar, drums and bass) who write and perform the music. Please see evidence of this work below:

The only thing we are missing is the funds to put this network of people into action... So far we have managed to fund a live recording/filming session of debut single, in order to have some original content that we can share and create a buzz around our band. We followed that step up by organising couple of gigs to raise some funds for our project and create further promotion. The motivation and drive to execute this project is there; aside from the content we have already manage to produce its worth noting we rehearse every week and have managed to create catalogue of 8 songs ready to be recorded with more in the the making. Please help us fullfill our goal and dream of recording an album that will provide us with the most incredible gigging opportunities and hopefully majorly contribute to our goal of becoming full time performing musicians.
