LUME On Tour

To promote the release of my debut album ‘New Era’ with my band Entropi (featuring Andre Canniere, Rebecca Nash, Olie Brice & Matt Fisher) we will be embarking on a nine date UK double bill tour (LUME On Tour) with Quadraceratops. LUME is the original/improvised music night I run with Cath Roberts weekly in Hoxton and monthly at the Vortex.

This tour is supported by Arts Council England. We are very excited!

ZONICA plays at ‘LUME Presents…’ @ the Vortex

I’m looking forward to playing with improvising acoustic/electronics ensemble ZONICA tomorrow at the Vortex as part of the ‘LUME Presents…’ series. It’s always a lot of fun playing with this group. It will definitely be one of the more unusual Easter Sundays I’ve experienced!

VTQ gigs in Bristol

I’m looking forward to playing a couple of gigs with the Vicky Tilson Quartet in Bristol: Tunnels Club (8th March) and Colston Hall Foyer (12th March). We’ll be playing tunes from the new album which is due for release on March 30th on the ‘F-IRE Presents’ label. It’s gonna be a blast!

Word of Moth @ LUME

I’m excited about the first outing of a brand new project (co-led by me and Cath Roberts) on Thursday 12th February at the Long White Cloud!

One of our most important goals when setting up LUME was to create a space for new projects and we’re taking advantage of that space and collaborating (musically) for the first time…

Word Of Moth will explore new compositions by Dee and Cath plus group improvisation. The two saxes will be joined by an exciting rhythm section of Seth Bennett (Nut Club, Metamorphic) on bass and Tom Greenhalgh (Snack Family, Metamorphic) on drums.

Dee Byrne alto sax, compositions
Cath Roberts baritone sax, compositions
Seth Bennett bass
Tom Greenhalgh drums

As usual it’s doors 8pm, music at 8.30pm. £5 entry.
See you there!

Entropi update + Happy Christmas!

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!
