North Ark

Joe Hill's North Ark is a septet made up of some of London's top musicians. Between them they have played nationally and internationally with names such as Liane Carroll, James Maddren, Alan Barnes and The National Youth Jazz Orchestra, as well as receiving numerous accolades such as British Rising Star (Rory Ingham) and BBC Young Jazz Musician Finalist (Tom Smith). The band come together in this project to play Joe's exciting original compositions and arrangements, which aim to engage not just jazz lovers but fans of any genre, and therefore concentrate on a wide variety of elements such as grooves, improvisation, accessible harmonic sequences, melodic writing and odd time signatures. They have recently recorded their debut E.P., and in November/December embarked on a very successful U.K. tour supported by Arts Council England. 

They will be premiering brand new music this summer at Love Supreme Festival, as well as some tunes from their recently released C.D..
