Good day good people, thank for finding this page!

I want to tell you about a dream I had when I was child (not so long ago…)
where I imagined a vast room full of musical instruments of all shapes and sizes with a handful of folks around to explore them…
Through a commission from the 2005 Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the Jerwood Foundation (ok, a fairly long time ago now…) I was able to manifest the essence of this dream assembling some immensely talented multi-instrumentalists and fantastic musical friends to form a special ensemble – ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC. While we have only performed a handful of gigs, I have been dreaming and scheming of a way to record the project ever since.

Thanks in part to a grant from the PRSF and many, many favours we made some beautiful headway in recording the original commissioned suite ‘Random Wishes and Abstract Dreams’ in the summer of 2015 but due to unforeseen circumstances we had to take a pause in proceedings. Now armed with some new music and renewed enthusiasm we are getting ready to finish what we started (and this is hopefully where you’ll come in)…

Your much needed support would cover the completion of the debut album, including a few more days in the studio, mixing with Dil Harris, mastering, artwork, the creation of new repertoire and ultimately the payment of all these most musical mates for their time and talents.

So who am I talking about….

ESKA (Matthew Herbert/Nitin Sawney/Zero7)
MARCINA ARNOLD (Quite Sane/Bheki Mseleku/Steve Williamson)
EMMA SMITH (Elysian Quartet/Hot Chip/James Yorkston)
ELLEN BLAIR (Echo Strings/Paloma Faith/Reggae Philharmonic)
SEB ROCHFORD (Polar Bear/Sons Of Kemet/Andy Sheppard)
BENET MCLEAN (Sir Simon Rattle/Carleen Anderson/Dennis Rollins)
ORPHY ROBINSON (Black Top/Jazz Warriors/Nigel Kennedy)
SHANTI JAYASINHA (Grand Union Orchestra/Alex Wilson/Janette Mason)
NEIL CHARLES (Terence Blanchard/Cerys Matthews/Alex Hawkins)
JULIAN SIEGEL (Partisans/John Taylor/Diane Schuur)
HARRY BROWN (Jazz Jamaica/Adele/Rudamental)
JASON YARDE (Andrew Hill/Louis Moholo Moholo/Keziah Jones)

With special guest members including…
COREY MWAMBA Vibes (New Dark Art/Evan Parker/Orphy Robinson)
DANIEL LEWIS Steel Pan (Panorama/Gary Trotman)
CONOR CHAPLIN Double Bass/Saxophone (Laura Jurd/Phil Meadows/Engines Orchestra)
and
JASON LINDNER (Now Vs. Now/David Bowie/Donny McCaslin)

-WHOAW-

In return, besides access to all the updates and exclusives of our Pledge Music campaign, naturally you’ll get the first opportunities to hear and own the music before the wider world (we hope!) across a number of formats from download, CD and double (maybe even triple…?) vinyl (signed or not) and at a handful of live events marking the album release on August 31st 2019.
In addition of course there will be all sorts of merchandise and experiences available too including quite possibly you personally expanding our in-house choir in time to make it on to the record.

If you haven’t already please do have a look at the video and see what’s available in the store and feel free to share with those who may care…
A massive THANK YOU to all those who have supported me in my musical endeavours thus far and I really look forward to catching up with you along what I hope will be a long(er) and fruitful journey with ACOUTASTiC BOMBASTiC.

All the Best Jason
