‚He reminds me of the young Django Bates, and the impression Django made on me in the 1980s – great improv chops, strong character as a player and a composer, evident love of the jazz tradition without wanting to repeat the past, very English sense of humour. He’s the kind of artist you always want to stay tuned in to, because you know he’s going to keep on coming up with surprises.’ John Fordham
Led by composer/pianist Elliot Galvin, The Influencing Machine is a sonic reaction to the human mind, technology and the post-truth age featuring bassist Tom McCredie and drummer Corrie Dick. Analogue synthesis and electric sounds orbit the acoustic world of piano, bass and drums as the ensemble present some exhilarating new music. One of the rising stars of UK jazz, Elliot is a key member of Dinosaur, led by Laura Jurd. A superbly gifted composer and pianist, his maverick imagination and magpie-like ability to blend a disparate world of influences has seen him compared to Django Bates.
His Elliot Galvin Trio, were announced as the winners of the European Young Jazz Artist of the Year Award in Germany 2014. That same year they released their debut album ‘Dreamland’ to rave reviews, with the Guardian calling it “audaciously accomplished” ****, Jez Nelson (BBC Radio 3, Jazz on 3) saying it was “Perhaps one of the strongest debuts that I’ve heard from a UK artist in a long while… extremely bold and progressive” and The German Jazz Magazine ‘JazzThing’ naming it as one of it’s albums of the year. Their second album, Punch, on leading European jazz label, Edition Records, was released to widespread critical acclaim in July 2016. His new album Elliot Galvin, The Influencing Machine, Edition Records, will be released in January 2018.
