Mike Fletcher

Multi-instrumentalist and composer Mike Fletcher performs throughout the UK and Europe. As a nominee for the ECHO Rising Stars 2014/2015 programme he has recently appeared at the Barbican Centre as part of the London Jazz Festival, Hamburg’s Laiezhalle and the CBSO Centre in Birmingham.

Mike works predominantly in the field of jazz and improvised music. His primary interest is in balancing composition with improvisation, creating music that has a ‘free-wheeling, experimental atmosphere and the real vibrancy that music being created in the moment can have.’ Mike’s three main projects are the Mike Fletcher Trio, the Different Trane nonet and 12-piece Mike Fletcher Jazz Orchestra.

As a soloist Mike performs and records with Paul Dunmall’s sextet, Tony Bianco’s Utoma and with the improvising trio Fletcher/Brice/Jozwiak, whose album Nick Of Time is available on Slam Productions. In 2013 Mike was chosen by BBC Radio 3 to tour on lead alto with the European Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Ann-Sofi Søderqvist. In 2014 he was named as an ECHO Rising Star by Birmingham Symphony Hall and will be performing with his trio at 10 major concert halls across Europe during 2014/2015.

Mike has appeared in clubs and jazz festivals across the UK (EFG London Jazz Festival/Cheltenham Jazz Festival/Manchester Jazz Festival), Europe (Outono Em Jazz – Portugal, Autumn Leaves Festival – Luxembourg) and internationally (Cambio S Festival – Brazil, IAJE Conference – Toronto). His work has been featured on BBC Radio, Sverige Radio (Sweden) and SRG SSR (Switzerland).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
