Dominic Ingham is a violinist, singer and composer who seeks to combine violin techniques from his folk and classical background, in order to create a unique way of playing jazz violin. His compositions are influenced by those of Pat Metheny, Ambrose Akinmusire, Vince Mendoza, as well as classical composers such as Ravel and Debussy. Dominic’s Quintet features Jonny Mansfield (winner of 2018 Kenny Wheeler Prize) on vibraphone, David Swan on piano, Will Sach on bass and Boz Martin-Jones on drums. They explore new musical spaces through this unusual line-up, as well as performing “modern-day lullabies”.

“The ability of Dominic becomes immediately apparent as his violin skilfully soars above a slow-burning groover”


Dominic has performed in a broad range of musical contexts, most notably with Bonsai -  ‘one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed young bands on the UK scene’. He’s also performed with Jonny Mansfield’s Elftet, Camila Meza’s Nectar Orchestra and indie rock band Blaenavon. Dominic has toured extensively across the UK and Europe in venues such as Ronnie Scotts, Love Supreme, The Royal Albert Hall, EFG London Jazz Festival, The Barbican, Heaven and Band on the Wall. Most recently Dominic was a semifinalist in the Seifert International Jazz Violin Competition, where he performed compositions from his debut album ‘Role Models’ (2020). 

‘Role Models pays homage to the people that have encouraged and inspired me to complete this work’, explains Dominic. ‘I would never have had the confidence or the drive to create something of my own if it hadn't been for the love and encouragement given to me by some truly incredible people’.
