One of New York’s finest guitarists, Brad Shepik makes a rare visit to the UK this August. He leads his UK Trio with two of the UK’s most in-demand musicians – James Maddren on drums and Calum Gourlay on bass.

UPDATE: Calum will be replaced by Tom Farmer on bass-( equally in-demand!)

Raised in Seattle (where he studied with the legendary guitarist and composer Ralph Towner) and resident in New York City since 1990, Brad Shepik has led groups at most of the major American and European festivals and clubs. His sideman credits extend to over 70 recordings and include influential collaborations with Paul Motian (Electric Bebop Band), Dave Douglas (Tiny Bell Trio), Charlie Haden (Liberation Music Orchestra), Joey Baron, Jochen Rueckert and Mark Turner.

An in-demand musician, Brad’s current projects include Rambler (with Chris Cheek and Ben Monder), the Brad Shepik Organ Trio (with Gary Versace and Mark Ferber), Jamie Baum’s Septet+, The Balkan Peppers and many others.

In addition to his talents as a performer and composer, he is much in demand as a teacher and is a long-standing professor on New York University’s jazz programme, where his influence is heard in a number of rising talents on the American jazz scene.

“A thoughtful composer and sensitive player player with a keen ear for harmony and rhythmic nuance” – Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times

 

“Shepik’s got the mind of a pioneer. The rhythmic complexity of his compositions has few parallels in jazz or any other genre, for that matter. With all his exotic influences, and all his different axes, he makes us rethink what it means to be a guitarist and a musician. There’s no telling where he’ll go next.” – allaboutjazz

 

 

“Shepik is one of the new jazz players who have redefined the “creative” or avant-garde side of the music in a way that is challenging but also beautiful and fun.” – Will Layman, Popmatters Music Review
