Tom Cawley’s Curios are one of the most successful and acclaimed jazz acts in the UK. After a long break, during which Cawley has toured internationally with Peter Gabriel’s ‘New Blood’ orchestral project, the band are set to return in 2015 with a brand new album, their first in five years. The band is available and now booking for UK dates in Autumn 2015.
With three acclaimed albums (Hidden, Closer and The Other Place) behind them, Curios are building an impressive and evolving catalogue of music. Audio excerpts from the forthcoming album can be heard on Soundcloud. The album was recorded at Real World studios and premiered at Bowers & Wilkins’ Society of Sound, emphasising the high quality of the recording. The music continues to build on some of the developments first heard on the band’s third album, The Other Place, with greater use of electronics and varied textures to accompany Cawley’s characteristically romantic and thoughtful themes.
Curios are winners in the Best Band category of the BBC Jazz Awards and have performed in the UK and Europe, including at Brecon Jazz Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival and at Ronnie Scott’s in London. The band is highly respected as a live act, and their relatively long absence means that audience anticipation and demand will be high.
