Dave Stapleton

Primary Instrument: Piano

Dave Stapleton is a singular young artist and has been recently described by the Guardian as having “produced one of the success stories of UK jazz over the past year’. Since graduating in 2002 from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama with a degree in classical piano Dave has recorded six albums as a leader and has won critical acclaim for each album from the Guardian, Observer, Jazzwise, and Independent on Sunday. Dave’s industriousness and imagination has seen him write for and record with a variety of ensembles over the past few years.

In 2004 he formed his quintet (Dave Stapleton Quintet—DSQ), which provides the main outlet for his music. Since its formation they have released two highly acclaimed albums ‘When Life Was In Black and White’ and ‘The House Always Wins’ and seen them perform throughout Europe and the UK including the Budapest, Cork, Zagreb, Belgrade, London, Brecon and Cheltenham Jazz Festivals, the latter as part of the Jerwood Jazz Generation....

He writes exceptionally well drawing on his classical training as well as jazz and he’s hungry to explore the possibilities of free improvisation…There’s something refreshingly unstuffy about Dave Stapleton’s sources of inspiration. There’s Jarrett and Hancock, of course, Dave Holland and Joshua Redman but also the American Minimalists like Phillip Glass, Steve Reich and Terry Riley.” —Jazzwise

“Stapleton is one of the most refreshing, sophisticated and intelligent young jazz composers working today...
