About the artist

On Friday 21st May we’re delighted to welcome the talented saxophonist Will Rees-Jones & friends for the launch of their new EP ‘Waypoint’.

What started as a simple lockdown collaboration between saxophonist/composer Will Rees-Jones and violinist, singer and all round creative Chloe Dickens has since turned into a fully fledged 11 piece band playing jazz inspired pop music with influences as diverse as Phony Ppl, Julian Lage and Joe Lovano.

Will’s jazz-focused band ‘Paper Lantern’ forms the basis of this group with a string quartet and singers on top creating a lush, warm sound.

The original goal of the project was to make some music over lockdown to try to keep some sanity, but over time it has grown into a band filled with wonderful musicians and friends making music to spread positivity in a world that’s lacking it. With an EP coming out in May 2021 and more music being composed all the time, it’s going to be an extremely exciting summer.
