Neil Cowley Trio burst onto the scene in 2006 with an outstanding debut that simply fizzed with energy. Its rip-roaring riffs, hook laden tunes and thrilling climaxes sat side by side with heart shattering musical whisperings and turned the concept of the piano trio on its head. Dubbed ‘Jazz for Radiohead fans’, it earned the trio a BBC Award for Best Album and a legion of fans. Since then, Neil Cowley Trio have released a further four highly acclaimed studio albums and carved out a reputation as one of Britain’s most exciting bands. Live, their captivating shows have at their core Cowley’s distinct wit and remarkable rapport with his audience. A dazzling pianist and outstanding composer, classically trained Neil Cowley creates deeply engaging music whose power and sheer emotion touch lovers of all music. He records and performs with his long time compatriots Evan Jenkins on drums and Rex Horan on bass, a band in the true sense of the word – that breathes and listens as one. Neil Cowley Trio released their fifth album Touch and Flee in the spring 2014. A defining moment in the evolution of the band, it’s exquisitely graceful movements meet with haunting passages, pulse, and gentle surprise, and as always, deliver to the listener the most blissful of rides.
