“Richard Spaven is one of the most unique artists in the world. Triple threat drummer, composer, and producer, his voice rings true with clarity and promise. He is the point where jazz meets the world” – Jose James, Blue Note’s

As a drummer, composer or artist, Richard Spaven is one of the world’s most exciting and genre-defying. His career has seen him play for many of music’s most innovative artists both on stage and in the studio: Jose James, Flying Lotus, The Cinematic Orchestra, Guru’s Jazzmatazz, Gregory Porter to name but a few.

Not only is he a much in demand drummer, but a boundary-pushing artist in his own right.

His debut album ‘Whole Other*’ (2014) touched on many musical palettes and bridged the gap between jazz and electronica. 2017’s ‘The Self’ saw him affirming his love for club culture and electronica, sampling his own drums on the Photek cover ‘Hidden Camera’ and collaborating with Metalheadz MC Cleveland Watkiss to recreate the London sound system vibe so integral to his background. In 2018 he released his latest solo record ‘Real Time’.

This concert is supported by Arts Council England’s Supporting Grassroots Live Music Fund and Forsyths Pianos.
