Cardiff based quintet led by bassist and composer Aidan Thorne. Also featuring Greg Sterland (tenor sax), Mark O’Connor (drums) and recent additions Paul Jones (keyboards) and Dan Messore (guitar). The group’s style is best described as “intelligent fusion”. Eponymous debut album released on Cambrian Records in October 2016.
"A contemporary group playing fresh, original music that deserves to be seen and heard. "
"Influenced not only by jazz but also by pop, rock and film Duski have created a distinctive, if slightly dark group sound. Their début scores high in terms of playing, writing and production."
