Royst Trio and Metamorphic are very excited to be embarking on their UK tour next week, with the first date at The Hothouse in Morecambe on June 12th. We’re very much looking forward to presenting our own sets as well as some joint pieces which we have been working on and which we are very excited about gigging out. Royst Trio are currently in Finland, competing in the Tampere Vocal Competition- best of luck to them! Metamorphic have already garnered a four star review in Jazzwise for their new album, Coalescence; Peter Quinn called the album ‘compelling and ear-catching’ and later goes on to say ‘pianist, composer and arranger Laura Cole has one of the most distinctive compositional voices around’. We hope to see you at The Hothouse on June 12th!
Royst Trio are: vocalists Kari Bleivik Nergaard (Jazz Yorkshire Vocalist of the Year 2012), Cecilie Giskemo and Maria Jardardottir
Metamorphic are: Chris Williams, alto (Led Bib); John Martin, tenor/soprano; Kerry Andrew, vocals; Tom Greenhalgh, drums; Paul Sandy, bass; Laura Cole, piano/composer/arranger
'Royst Trio and Metamorphic will also be joined by special guests Seth Bennett on double bass (IDST) and Ollie Dover on bass clarinet (Shatner's Bassoon) for the tour.'
