British guitarist Ant is “a game changer” according to The Guardian. He lives in London and leads his own quintet. His 4th album ‘The Sleeper Wakes’ (Edition Records) was released on the 24th July 2020 to great acclaim. The 5tet are pleased to be back on tour again throughout 2022!

The pandemic hit in the middle of The Sleeper Wakes European tour. London was locked-down and Ant began collaborating on a series of remote recordings with a range of artists across the globe. This evolved into weekly livestreams in which he broadcast the collaborative music videos and interviewed the guests. It is entitled “QZ” – which stands for Quarantine Zone.

Now that live performances are back in full swing the QZ has been paused – although all previous episodes are available to watch on YouTube

In 2013 his debut ‘Entanglement’ (33Jazz) was released, followed by ‘Zero Sum World’ (Whirlwind Recordings) in 2015 and then ‘Life I Know’ (Edition Records) in 2018. This release was described as “career-defining”. It achieved 5 star reviews, made numerous “best of 2018″ lists, received airplay in the UK, Europe, Australia, and was added to numerous editorial playlists on streaming services.

In addition to leading his own projects, Ant plays in Tim Garland’s band with Jason Rebello & Asaf Sirkis, featuring on albums ‘Songs To The North Sky’, ‘Return To The Fire’ & ‘ONE’ which was shortlisted for a Grammy and won the Jazzwise Best Album award.

Ivo Neame played in his own quartet at the East Side earlier this year to great acclaim. That quartet also featured Michael Chillingworth and Tom Farmer.
