Musicians in The John Metcalfe Band
Louisa Fuller; violin
As leader of The Duke Quartet, Louisa has performed, broadcast and recorded worldwide to great acclaim. The group's versatility and fearless approach to music-making have led them into an unequalled range of projects including dance, education, pop and their own compositions. Collaborations include performances with the likes of Marc Andre Hamelin and Jessye Norman to recordings with non-classical artists such as Blur, The Pretenders and George Michael. They have also commissioned many new works from composers such as Kevin Volans and Graham Fitkin.
Andy Gangadeen; drums
Andy's huge talents have taken him into many different areas from mainstream pop (touring with the Spice Girls) through trip-hop (recording with Massive Attack) to improvised house and drum 'n' bass with his own band The Bays. Most recently he has been recording and touring with Chase and Status.
Simon Richmond; keyboards, sonic science
The Bays' sonic genius Simon 'Palmskin' Richmond comes complete with fine-tuned keyboard skills and an uncanny sense of timing; not just rhythmic feel but a unique sense for when something is right. Always done with beauty, finesse and great intensity.
Ali Friend; bass
With outstanding musicianship, technique and feel Ali is also ideal for this kind of project bringing his versatile and distinguished pedigree to bear on proceedings combined with vast experience through touring and recording with Red Snapper and Imagined Village.
