"Injecting their brand of jazz with a healthy shot of alternative rock, St. Barbe deliver a slick, fresh take on the genre that brings it straight into the twenty-first century.”

"This band opened for us last night in London and they were unbelievable"

- Dennis Chambers (Mike Stern Band, Santana, Steely Dan)

 

Dissolving the lines between jazz, rock and electronic music, St. Barbe create a rich and expansive sound world fuelled by high-octane improvisation, ethereal textures and complex beats. 

 

The band made their debut in 2021 with Shapeless, a self-produced and independently-released three track E.P which garnered support from Spotify’s editorial jazz playlists and received a feature in Guitar Magazine, accumulating over three hundred thousand streams to date. In July 2022 they supported world-renowned guitarist Mike Stern at London's Jazz Cafe, following a U.K tour  with dates in Manchester, Nottingham, Bristol and a featured performance at Cheltenham Jazz Festival.  Their live set draws on the compositions of ‘Shapeless’ and an eclectic range of new material, offering an immersive blend of extended improvisations and intricate trio arrangements that move freely from delicate melodicism to full-throttle fusion.
