"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. 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. The trio saw further success that year with the release of singles Tellicherry and Noumena, accumulating over half a million streams and solidifying their growing reputation as a band whose impossible-to-pin-down sound is on a trajectory all of its own.
