As one of the stalwarts of the London jazz scene, tuba player and composer Theon Cross has been dominating airwaves and stages recently.
Having made a name for himself both as a member of the Mercury-nominated and award-winning quartet Sons of Kemet, as well as his own powerful and eclectic solo material, the last few years have seen Cross appear on a number of highly acclaimed releases including the lauded We Out Here compilation via Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings.
He has also performed with the likes of Kano, Moses Boyd, Makaya McCraven, Jon Batiste, Pharoahe Monch and Courtney Pine, and is a permanent fixture in south London-based collective Steam Down.
Cross also leads his own powerful and eclectic group where he’s flanked by other strong emerging voices on the current London scene: tenor saxophonist Nubya Garcia and drummer Moses Boyd.
His debut release Aspirations was one of the most impactful of 2015, gaining him nominations including Best Instrumentalist of the year from Jazz FM Awards. Now, Cross is gearing up to release his highly anticipated debut album Fyah.
As a young man, Cross practised and performed with Southbank Centre Creative Learning Partners Kinetika Bloco and Tomorrow's Warriors.
