Elliot Galvin Trio
Trio led by the young pianist and composer Elliot Galvin and featuring Tom McCredie (double bass) and Simon Roth (drums). Debut album “Dreamland” released on the Chaos Collective label in 2014. Follow up, “Punch”, released on Edition records in July 2016.
"An evening of adventurous, imaginative and highly colourful music making. The technical skill exhibited by all three members of the group was consistently dazzling."
"Galvin is a musician of enormous technical facility, but the most refreshing thing about his playing is the way in which he channels this gift to make music that is daring, fun and genuinely original."
"Reflects the times in which it was created and as such represents Galvin’s most mature musical and artistic statement to date. "
