This intense and thrilling band represents the front rank of the contemporary UK jazz scene. Lauded for her imaginative approach to improvisation and composition, Clowes provides her bandmates Ross Stanley (piano/Hammond organ), Chris Montague (guitar) and James Maddren (drums) with a unique platform for individual expression, delivering driving grooves and lingering melodic lines, seamlessly morphing between earthy restlessness and futuristic dreamscapes.

Since their album release in early 2017 the band have already toured and performed in the UK, Ireland and Germany, winning over fans and critics wherever they go. Past appearances include; The Barbican, EFG London Jazz Festival, the National Opera House (Wexford), Gateshead International Jazz Festival, Turner Sims (Southampton) and Stadthaus Ulm (Germany), with broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and Radio Bremen (Germany). A second album, ‘Ninety Degrees Gravity’, will be released in Spring 2019.
