Fulborn Teversham are the mindblowing new group of Seb Rochford, the extraordinarily in-demand and prolific drummer/composer, leader of Mercury Music prize nominees Polar Bear, and winner of BBC Jazz award for Rising Star 2004.
Fulborn Teversham pursue a more eclectic, and less overtly jazz direction than Polar Bear, or indeed Rochford’s other acclaimed group, Acoustic Ladyland, incorporating elements of electronica, Henry Cow-style prog and post punk. With clever balancing of cosmic and acoustic sounds, Seb Rochford (drums), Nick Ramm (Nord synthesizer), Pete Wareham (saxophones), and Alice Grant (vocals), set up an intimate and thrilling improvisational punk jazz chamber music for the future.
This is not nu jazz, acid jazz, Jamie jazz, Parky jazz, Brit jazz, beardo jazz,post-jazz or twee jazz. It's dream jazz.

Leafcutter John’s music draws listeners into a tiny world; one where delicate sounds become intensely dramatic, where subtlety is power and where bewitching melodies haunt. Joined by singer Alice Grant and cellist Joe Zietlin Leafcutter’s live show is like no other.
Alongside Aphex Twin and Bogdan Raczynski – [Leafcutter John is] one of the UK's most fearlessly inventive electronicists… a striking hybrid of pastoral songcraft, glitch, field recordings and traditional Greek instrumentation that goes far beyond ‘folktronica', running the gamut of moods from sweetly mournful to darkly malevolent.
