Australian born bass player and composer Lucy Clifford has found her place within many music contexts by way of carrying her signature interest wholeheartedly; that being the strength of her relationship with groove. In her own works, she presents her music in a five-piece setting, with a collective of her closest musical companions.
Although rooted in jazz expression, the sounds of the group push and pull through the various influences and styles of this internationally based ensemble, spanning from several corners of the globe, with Ecuador, Panama, Switzerland, the USA and Australia as a united backdrop. Adopting jazz, afrobeat, reggae, hiphop and experimental new music tendencies to produce melodies that coexist with underlying groove based compositions, the group has consciously shaped a style of its own individualistic nature.
Currently based in New York City and performing regularly to their NYC based audience, the members of this group have enjoyed many success's, performing at international festivals including The Martinique Jazz Festival, Sydney International Women's Jazz Festival, Accra Jazz festival, Panama Jazz festival and are working towards a 2019 album release. The band features Anggie Obin (Flute, Panama), Julian Velasco (Vibraphone, Ecuador) Evan Waaramaa (Keys, USA) and Jessie Cox (Drums, Switzerland).
