We’re thrilled to be doing a nine date tour to launch our album in May/June this year! This will be no ordinary tour either, as we’ll be joined by the amazing Quadraceratops under the banner of LUME – the original/improvised night I run together with Cath Roberts! Here are the dates:

26th May @ SPOTTED DOG, Birmingham

27th May @ LESCAR, Sheffield

29th May @ FUSEBOX, Leeds

31st May @ JAZZ NORTH EAST, Newcastle

1st June @ FREEDOM PRINCIPLE, Manchester

5th June @ BEBOP CLUB, Bristol

7th June @ VORTEX,  Dalston

15th June @ FRIENDS MEETING HOUSE, Derby 

16th June @ DEMPSEY’S, Cardiff

The year is drawing to a close and it’s been an eventful one for Entropi with a packed out gig at Pizza Express (part of the ‘Xantone Blacq Presents’ series), being awarded the Jazz Services Recording Support Grant, recording our debut album at Fish Factory Studios, launching a successful Kickstarter campaign and playing to a full house at LUME for the EFG London Jazz Festival – read our great review HERE.

We’re looking forward to an exciting year in 2015 when we release our album on the ‘F-IRE Presents’ label, with album launch planned for June 7th at the Vortex with ‘LUME Presents…’ and plans for an ambitious UK double-bill tour! More on that soon.

Meanwhile, have a great Christmas!

After a hugely eventful six months the dust is beginning to settle. Defining moments were: playing to a great crowd at Pizza Express Dean Street on April 1st; being chosen as one of the artists for the prestigious Jazz Services Recording Support Scheme; recording and mixing our debut album over three days at the Fish Factory Studios; launching a successful Kickstarter campaign and finally being signed to the F-IRE label for a release next Spring.

Not only am I excited by the music on the album, but also the accompanying artwork (being currently worked on by Ricky Day) which will complement the compositions and general direction of the album. We met for a drink last week and I was so happy with the ideas and drawings that Ricky came up with. See photo below for a sneak preview!

Watch this space for news of album launch, accompanying tour…. and of course lots of cool artwork!
