About the band
Twospeak are a London based band formed in 2016 by in-demand saxophonist Ronan Perrett. Since then the group have solidified their musical identity as an exciting and unique blend of jazz, rock, indie and electronic music, their unique sound surfacing from the member’s individual musical personalities along with the distinct instrumentation of sax, keyboards, synths, guitar, drums and percussion.
Twospeak toured the UK in 2019, supported by Arts Council England, followed by the critically acclaimed release of their first LP in the spring of 2021. ‘Exciting to listen to.. Twospeak don’t sound like anyone else on the vibrant British jazz scene’ – Matthew Ruddick (Kind of Jazz). They have performed at the London Jazz Festival, Jazz Juniors festival in Krakow and Greenwich Jazz Festival. Looking ahead, they are performing at Ural Terra Jazz Festival in Russia and Nica Jazz festival in Spain in the summer of 2022.
Ronan is signed as a solo artist to Fresh Sound New Talent, who’s roster includes Bad Plus, Robert Glasper, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Miguel Zenon. He is currently a recipient of the Help Musicians Transmission fund for a year-long mentoring programme with the world-renowned drummer/composer John Hollenbeck and saxophonist Chris Speed.
