Chube draw their inspiration from a wide variety of artists and genres and aim to write electro acoustic music that pushes the boundaries of their instruments. The harp features prominently in their performances, and there is regular usage of effects processors with the harp to take the harp from it's regular, classical sound, to a rock guitar through distortion, an ambient synth through delays and phasers, and much more.
Chube's performance features a true mix of genres and styles of music performed on a completely unique combination of electro-acoustic instruments. Their unique jazz fusion sets include lots of original tracks, such as the disco track 'Shift', ambient track 'Chryslism', and folk inspired tracks 'The Land' and 'Salty Tongue'. They also perform their own arrangements of well known covers such as Led Zepplin's 'When The Levee Breaks', Miles Davis' 'Milestones', and Herbie Hancock's 'Watermelon Man'.
Chube have performed at the Harp on Wight and Aberjazz Festivals, The Black Mountain Jazz Club as well as playing at independent shows alongside various bands. They are scheduled to appear at Wall2Wall Jazz Festival 2019 with special guest artist Dennis Rollins on Trombone. Tracks from their debut EP have been played to positive reviews twice on BBC Wales Introducing with Adam Walton and on BBC Radio 3s Jazz Now, and they are in the process of writing new material for a second EP.
“There are artists who are artists and just do whatever the hell they please….they clearly don’t give a fig for whatever bandwagons that pass through town” – Adam Walton, 10/02/18, BBC Radio Wales Introducing
