Exciting and irreverent young London based quintet led by Dave Morecroft (keyboards) and featuring Tim Ower (saxes), Raphael Clarkson (trombone), Conor Chaplin (bass) and Liam Waugh (drums). Founders of the Match & Fuse touring scheme which has seen the band linking up with their young counterparts across Europe.
WSP’s second album “Fire In A Pet Shop” released June 2013.
Third album “For King & Country” released 2016 with Chaplin and Waugh replaced by Arthur O’ Hara and Harry Pope respectively.
"A thrilling if sometimes exhausting listen. WSP mix styles and genres, happily hopping from one to another in the course of a single tune like frogs on acid."
"The band's hardest hitting album yet. WSP's music still sounds wildly exciting and very much still on track. "
""The music is hard edged and uncompromising and the playing universally excellent". Ian Mann enjoys a performance by WorldService Project and takes a look at their new album "Serve"."
