RUNNING TIME: 2hr 30mins / AGE GROUP: 12+ TICKETS: £10 / CONCESSIONS: £8
Quinn Oulton exhibits a raw sound, melding soaring vocals and tangled acoustic textures with abstract electronics. The sound is deeply unique, which is understandable when you consider the journey that he has taken to reach this point in his career.
Quinn picked up the saxophone at a very young age. His thirst for music was nurtured by mentors Julian Joseph and Soweto Kinch – two heavyweights of the UK jazz scene. Although jazz was his focus, he was also surrounded by blues, folk and rock music at home thanks to his dad’s diverse record collection.
His first leap into the world as a solo artist was a self-produced EP in 2017, when he began exploring his own voice and how to manipulate his skills as an instrumentalist to tell a story. These releases earned him a place on the 2018 Red Bull Music Academy. The two week course entirely changed his scope and ambitions, as his eyes were opened to the world of electronic music culture – working alongside legends such as Just Blaze and father of techno Mike Banks (Underground Resistance).
‘Show Your Face’, is Quinn’s latest EP released in July 2021. The project shows his strengths when working with collaborators Conor Albert and Demae (of the Touching Bass family), and a new, exciting way of blending traditional jazz and electronic soundscapes.
Quinn also tours and regularly appears on radio and TV alongside 2020 Mercury Nominee, Moses Boyd.
This event is part of London Jazz Festival 2021
Leading up to her debut release, Ella Hohnen-Ford performs her new music in the intimate setting of piano and voice. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music as a Jazz vocalist, she is carving a unique sound for herself as an artist.
