Internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Andrew McCormack consistently challenges himself to explore new and very different musical styles as an artist. Whether appearing with Kyle Eastwood or Jamie Cullum, with a symphony orchestra or as a solo pianist, at outdoor festivals or an intimate club, you can always expect the highest level of performance.

Andrew McCormack’s latest band project is Graviton and released it’s first album on {PIAS} Jazz Village in 2017. For that release, McCormack assembled an A-List of the most sought-after musicians in the modern jazz world, all of whom bring something special to the mix. Eska, Mercury prize nominee on vocals, Sons of Kemet’s sax sensation Shabaka Hutchings and Jacob Collier’s electric bass supremo Robin Mullarkey and, in keeping with this extraordinary line-up, Scandinavia’s Anton Eger, of Phronesis and Marius Neset fame, was the driving force on drums.

Their music may be best described as a mix of Steve Reich and Tigran Hamasyan, without boundaries.

McCormack’s next Graviton release, The Calling will feature his regular touring version of the band with Noemi Nuti on vocals, Josh Arcoleo on sax, Tom Herbert on electric bass and Josh Blackmore on drums. Look out for the release in the summer of 2019 on the fast rising Ubuntu Music label.
