Biography of Shifting Sands

Jo Lander trained initially in classical music, obtaining a Master of Arts. She currently teaches music and takes jazz piano lessons with Tim Richards.

Jo had a passion for 19th century piano music from the age of 14, which later became an influence on composition, along with the ideas of Bill Evans, Miles Davis, John Lewis, Nick Weldon, Patricia Barber and Theo Travis. Her study of harmony and voicing has been the main focus of her compositional ideas. She also likes the concept of improvisation being used to develop a small idea to create a longer thread.

Debbie Winter is a classically trained vocalist. She became interested in jazz through listening to the works of Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Patricia Barber, and the performances of Ella Fitzgerald, Kurt Elling and Mark Murphy. She was inspired by the above singers’ ability to use the voice as an instrument and their focus on tone and phrasing as well as vocal artistry. Debbie also has a keen interest in the purity and clarity of Baroque vocal music, and has a great admiration for these, and other, attributes of the singer Emma Kirkby.

Mick Hutton is an internationally acclaimed bass player who now due to a hand injury plays bass and steel-pan. He has joined the band and collaborated in the writing process.

Paul Robinson played with Nina Simone for 19 years and has also played with Rod Stewart, Paul McCartney and the Art of Noise. He joined the band to record the album and regularly gigs at the Mick Hutton Jazz Club.
