Phil Meadows Project
‘The versatile and likeable Meadows is one of the most promising emerging jazz talents that we have’ - The JazzMann
The Phil Meadows Project continues the journey for his multi-award winning music. Combining jazz elements with ambient-electronica, classical and contemporary music Meadows has established himself as one of the most distinctive, creative and talented young musicians in the UK. This original music showcases an important wave of British talent performing extensively across UK and venturing into mainland Europe.
With two studio albums behind him plans are afoot to record his third album in 2017. Exploring new musical relationships and fresh influences soaring melodies combine with head-nodding grooves, atmospheric soundscapes and intricate interplay as he tips influence towards Go-Go Penguin, Portico Quartet, Bill Laurance, Donny McCaslin and Tigran. Performance highlights for Meadows include sold-out shows at Ronnie Scott's, commissions to work with the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead and a recent trip to perform in Belgium at OPEK as a finalist of the B-Jazz International Contest.
Join us as Meadows brings his brand new music to UK/European stages, taking audiences on a journey through the life of a twenty-something at a time of political and economical uncertainty.
