Biography of Trish Clowes

Saxophonist and composer Trish Clowes is currently a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. John Fordham (Guardian) has described Clowes as “one of the most agile and original jugglers of improv and adventurous composition to have appeared in the UK in recent times”.

Clowes moved to London in 2003 to study at the Royal Academy of Music with Iain Ballamy and Pete Churchill. In 2008 she won a Development Award from the Musicians Benevolent Fund which was used to form a new ensemble, Tangent. Then in 2010 Clowes recorded and released her debut album for Basho Records, also named ‘Tangent’, featuring her small band, pianist Gwilym Simcock, vocalist Kathleen Willison and two orchestral tracks conducted by Jules Buckley (of the Metropole Orkest). The album was critically acclaimed, receiving praise for it’s integrity, luminosity and ambition.

Her second album for Basho Records ‘And in the night-time she is there’ was released in September 2012 followed by a UK tour with her band Tangent, with guest appearances from Gwilym Simcock, Mike Walker, Martin France and a string quartet led by violinist Thomas Gould. Venues included Kings Place London and The Sage Gateshead and the tour was supported by Jazz Services. Clowes’ ‘Iris Nonet’, which was premiered on this tour, was shortlisted for the 2013 BASCA British Composer Awards.

Clowes curates her own festival Emulsion with Glyndebourne Young Composer in Residence, Luke Styles. Emulsion compositions and the Emulsion development scheme are supported by the PRS for Music Foundation and Jerwood Charitable Foundation respectively. Emulsion 3 took take place at the end of May 2014 – receiving 5 stars from the Arts Desk – and was supported by Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation.

Recent performances include studio and live broadcasts for BBC Radio 3 and a recreation of the album ‘Barbara Song’ by saxophonist/composer Barbara Thompson, which is a collection of Kurt Weill tunes specially arranged for Barbara to play with string quartet. The composers/arrangers featured include Mike Westbrook, Richard Rodney Bennett, Mike Gibbs and Barbara Thompson.

Earlier this year, Trish recorded her third album 'Pocket Compass' with the BBC Concert Orchestra and made an appearance at Celtic Connections with Gwilym Simcock and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Trish’s third album is due to be released in the Autumn of 2014 with a launch at the 2014 EFG London Jazz Festival.
