25 year old Grifton Forbes-Amos is a London based trumpeter/composer who has been playing music from the young age of 10 working to indentify his sound and what music means to him. He strives to seek his sound from all the resources he’s come across creating something new but still paying homage to Jazz music he loves.
Since 2017 he has been making himself more known in the Jazz scene, constantly trying to develop his sound through the genres he regularly performs in like: Jazz, Latin music, Fusion, Afrobeat and many more. He is heavily influenced through bands/artist like Roy Hargrove, Marquis Hill, Freddie Hubbard, Lee Morgan etc. who all aimed to find their unique sound within the music they performed/composed.
After finishing his studies in 2021 Grifton continued on to be a part of bands such as: TC and the Groove family, Neue Grafik Ensemble and many more. As well has performed with bands/projects like Nubiyan Twist, Soweto Kinch, Shabaka Hutchings and Blue Lab Beats.
Tonight he will be playing some of his own compositions along with some standards
