"Soaring melodies, heart-rending harmonies."
Cellars and Lofts
"They really jumped out at me and stood out from the pack."
Jez Nelson, Jazz on 3 (BBC Radio 3)
"It's obvious that as a band Olivia's Owls have considerable potential. Here is a sound world where the ensemble sound is paramount and instrumental integration is key."
Ian Mann, www.thejazzmann.com
Olivia's Owls are led by composer and bassist Hedi Pinkerfeld and featuring the in-demand talents of Alex Coppard, Charlie Laffer and Josh Stadlen.
Captured live over two wintery days, Moments Arriving is the debut album from Olivia's Owls.
The music is driven by a love for harmony dating back over the last 150 years. Ideas effected by Faure, Scriabin and others are expanded upon and delivered with a powerful, contemporary jazz sensibility and the energy of an intemperate indie band.
These musicians, working collaboratively, continue to explore and expand their already-distinctive musical concept. With this album, they provide a compelling and emotive account of moments arriving.
Moments Arriving is released on 9 March 2015 by F-IRE Recorded Music and distributed by Proper Music Distribution.
