Peter Edwards is a pianist, composer and musical director who’s ‘guileless, soulful music…[is] full of empathic chording, latin grooves and romantic, cinematic themes’ (Guardian)
He is the 2015 Parlimentary Jazz Awards ‘Newcomer of the year’ and was among the nominees for the 2015 Jazz FM ‘Breakthrough Artist’ award. He has worked with acclaimed artists Mica Paris and Zara Mcfarlane, directs the Nu Civilisation Orchestra and is a 2017 New Music Biennial commissioned composer.
Peter Edwards Trio ‘Psychedelic Soul Sessions’ will be presenting new material that is inspired by Miles Davis’ 1970s electric period and the music of Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters. It blends driving jazz funk grooves with afro beat, lush string pads and soulful melodic improvised explorations.
