Morpher, made up of Leeds bred Sax, Bass and Drums combine electronics to bring the Northern powerhouse sound of underground groove, Drum and Bass, topped with sweet lashings of sonic melodies. Their performance energy is unlike any other live experience. With a nod to the uprising of the current London Jazz, LA Beat Makers and Underground New York Electronics scenes. These three Artists blend their respective styles effortlessly, with spirit-freeing ease.

"Morpher always deliver a super fresh, exciting and dynamic performance. The trio features three of the UK's finest emerging young jazz musicians, who's superb musicianship and compositions always collectively create an original, unique and cutting edge sound full of energy and style" - Jim Corry (Jamiroquai, Mark Ronson, Jay Z, Lilly Allen)

As well as playing their tunes from their debut album, Morpher will be performing and extending new and existing material, as well as improvising grooves and melodies on the night. Their aim is to get your head nodding, body shaking and open your ears to sounds you've never experienced before.
