Exciting and energetic this band has been mentioned as one of the best live contemporary jazz bands in London at the moment.
Its strong and unique sound has captivated the interest of the Jazz community who called them “intriguing” or “innovative”. From the catchy rock-like riffs to more quiet and mesmerising atmospheres they cover a full spectrum of textures unveiling a vast background of musical influences and leading the listener through a very diverse and ‘bumpy’ journey.
They jumped into international recognition in 2012 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Doors’ and later with ‘New World’.
Vitor Pereira was born in Porto/Portugal where he studied mainly classical music and classical guitar. His interest in Jazz took him to participate in seminars and private lessons with the likes of Pat Metheny, Jonathan Kreisberg, Gilad Hekselman or Aaron Goldberg to name a few and ultimately led him to London in 2004 to study at the “Middlesex University”.
Living in London since then he is an active name in the UK and Europe playing with names like: James Allsopp, Asaf Sirkis, Josh Arcoleo, Binker Goldings, Marc Demuth, etc…
