Formed in the mid-90s, the Tony Woods Project has recorded four highly acclaimed albums of original, folk/jazz-inspired compositions: High Seas (1997), Lowlands (2004), Wind Shadows (2009) and Hidden Fires (2017), the latter release garnering several four-star reviews.

While happily shifting gear between jigs and reels, free funk, Balkan dances and ambient electronics, Tony’s folk roots are immediately obvious in his compositions, while the jazz connections – plus influences spanning, Latin, African, rock and groove – play their part too, but always with an emphasis on lyrical melody.

The latter comes courtesy of Rob Millett’s glowing, Gary Burton-esque vibraphone sound, Mike Outram’s superlative, angular chord work, Andy Hamill’s rock-steady bass and Milo Fell’s percussive prowess.

“Combines a jazz edge with the melodic zest of folk . . . delightful.” – BBC Radio 3
