Elliot Galvin

Elliot Galvin is available solo, with his trio and duo with Binker Golding.

Elliot is a prolific composer and has been commissioned by a number of Ensembles, Dance Companies, Theatre Groups and Festivals including the London Sinfonietta, Ligeti String Quartet, St. John Smith’s Square, The London Jazz Festival, The RESOLUTION! Dance Festival at The Place and the Theatre Company Cut Tongues. He works regularly with multi-media and in 2014 put on a multi-media installation piece at the Turner Contemporary Gallery, which consisted of live performance, interactive sound sculptures and film.

He performs regularly as a soloist and is a key member of the Mercury nominated Band Dinosaur. He has recently began a duo project with the renowned saxophonist Binker Golding (one half of Binker and Moses), with whom he released an album on Byrd Out records in January 2019.

In 2014 The Elliot Galvin Trio were announced as the winners of the European Young Jazz Artist of the Year Award in Germany. That same year they released their debut album ‘Dreamland’ to rave reviews, with the Guardian calling it “audaciously accomplished” ****, Jez Nelson (BBC Radio 3, Jazz on 3) saying it was “Perhaps one of the strongest debuts that I’ve heard from a UK artist in a long while… extremely bold and progressive” and The German Jazz Magazine ‘JazzThing’ naming it as one of it’s albums of the year.

‘Punch’ was their second album, and their debut for leading European jazz label, Edition Records. Released in August 2016 and received international acclaim, with The Evening Standard calling it “Audacious and Inspired… A rising star heading for the UK Jazz A-List” ****, and Jazz In Europe saying it is “Unique, sounds like no one else… A definitive style all of their own” ****.

Their most recent album is entitled ‘The Influencing Machine’, it is a sonic reaction to Technology, the human mind and the post-truth age, being hailed by DownBeat Magazine as “Glorious in it’s arrestingly planned order of manic development” ****1/2. After the success of ‘The Influencing Machine’ the trio went back into the studio and released their most recent album ‘Modern Times’ on 19th of April 2019.

Press
"Höllisch unterhaltsame Musik."
JazzThing
"Auffällig, wie häufig dieses Attribut [Genie] bei dem erst 27 Jahre alten Tastenkünstler Elliot Galvin auftaucht."
Fono Forum
"The set is right in Elliot Galvin’s ballpark of brilliantly executed bright ideas and witty diversions."
The Guardian
" No single ensemble conveys Galvin’s personality as much as his agile trio with drummer Corrie Dick and bassist Tom McCredie, which is as wildly inventive as it is effervescently fun. ”
