Roller Trio are a unique band. Their sound is modern and gritty, pushing sonic boundaries to their limits. Switching the feel of a tune in a heartbeat from edgy improv to anthemic power riffs to reverb-swamped note storms, Roller Trio are powerful and progressive.
Their latest album, New Devizes, released on Edition Records in 2018, mix of high octane technicality and deceptively catchy tunes has transcended their Jazz heritage, bringing them acclaim from fans and critics alike.
With a line-up that includes Chris Sharkey, a guitarist at the cutting-edge of contemporary guitar improv, alongside James Mainwaring, saxophone & electronics and Luke Reddin-Williams, drums the experience is an exhilarating, rollicking ride – an exercise in freeform free fall, a three for all free-for-all, moderated by the musical logic and compositional rigour of the pieces.
Leeds-based electronic soul quartet Noya Rao are purveyors of lush enigmatic dreamscapes and grooving electronica.
Their compositions draw on influences from jazz, hip hop and electronic music while incorporating the sounds of the bass-heavy dub music synonymous with the Leeds music scene.
Featuring everything from rude 80s flavour to trippy disco and dreamy space jazz, their music demonstrates the merging of ethereal edginess and delicate songwriting.
