The Olly Chalk Trio are back at the Music Room, to celebrate the long-awaited release of their new album Scathed Citizens

Olly’s trio walks the high-wire between total freedom and detailed writing, juggling intricate, daring and emotive compositions with explosive improvising. Olly’s writing draws from 20th Century Classical and traditional Japanese music and often make connections to poetry and spoken word. After winning the 'Peter Whittingham Development Award' in January 2018, the trio were joined in the studio by fiery New York saxophonist John O’Gallagher. The music from this new album explores a vivid picture-book of themes: science fiction, mysticism, hope, anxiety, dystopia and growing up in the peaceful Suffolk countryside.

Olly is without doubt one of the most gifted players of his generation. He has everything: sound, groove, vibe, detail, intellect, intention, invention, energy, delicacy…above all, he plays from the heart.
