Line Up

Chube is a young Fusion band based in Cardiff led by Ben Creighton Griffiths (Electric Harp/Keys) with Ashley John Long/Cameron Saint (Basses) and Jon Bradford-Jones (Drums). They draw their inspiration from a wide variety of artists and genres and write electro acoustic music that pushes the boundaries of their instruments. The harp features prominently in performances, and Ben uses effects processors to take the harp from its regular, classical sound, to a rock guitar through distortion, an ambient synth through delays and phasers, and much more. Combined with innovative percussion and groovy bass riffs it all goes to creating a totally unique blend of Jazz Fusion.

Joe and the band are fairly new to gigging as an outfit, they have played a handful of shows around Manchester and done one session in the studio together, but are very experienced playing with one another on external projects, notably for Olivia Diaferia and not dvr.

Jamie Sidwell is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer and composer who explores the combination of jazz harmony within song-form alternative music. ‘Telepathic’ is his debut single, and part of his upcoming album.

Jamie grew up in North London in a house where music was always playing. At age 18, Jamie moved to Boston in the U.S. He currently attends Berklee College of Music where he is continuing his music exploration whilst working on projects of his own to release to the public.

At age 7, Jamie learned to play the piano. He played mainly classical music through ABRSM and Trinity grades through to 14 years old where he passed his grade 8 with Distinction. Since then he has diversified through other genres playing more cinematic and jazz music whilst being a passionate improviser on the piano.

At age 10, Jamie picked up the drums having private lessons and not long after joined a rock band and played gigs.

Following this, Jamie decided to create his own music and took the opportunity to go into production putting his creativity into practice.

Since then, Jamie has added singing to his portfolio through vocal coaching enabling him to sing the lyrics he’d written over the years.

Jamie has collaborated with other musicians and performed gigs in England and the U.S. He is now entering a career as a new solo artist where he will share his own craft now and in the future.
