After meeting at the widely attended FOLD jam session held initially in Hilly Fields Park in Lewisham at the easing of lockdown before taking it's home at the infamous Matchstick Piehouse in Deptford, the project has grown through using riffs, motifs and melodic phrases as frameworks for expansive, creative improvisation: leading to compositions inspired by everything from Cornish landscapes to mental health struggles. Since then, the project has performed sold out concerts at jazz clubs (such as Toulouse Lautrec, Notting Hill Arts Club and CLF Art Lounge) and alternative/ rock venues (Matchstick Piehouse, Amersham Arms etc) alike: both with an incredible reception from promoters and audiences.
