Flavours of 60s Blue Note records, 90s Radiohead, pre-war Vaughan Williams and contemporary New York jazz combine to create an intensely engaging sound
Hailing from rural Leicestershire with Welsh roots, graduating from Trinity Laban via Junior Birmingham Conservatoire and now bringing a fresh perspective to South East London, Nye Banfield is a profoundly creative saxophonist and composer who paints visceral scenes from his life and the people around him. Nye has a love for classical music and a deep affection for all art which speaks with a raw honesty. Combining his influences from jazz icons Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Ambrose Akinmusire, and mentor Mark Lockheart, Nye concocts an audio-feast of fluid improvisation and rich composition, leading the listener on a vivid journey.
