Wilbur's Fate - a New Project.

Wilbur's Fate has a very distinctive musical sound, combining jazz with elements of folk, ambient and rock. The talented four piece are: Jordie Cooke - guitar, Matthew Forster - tenor sax/bass clarinet, David Francis - drums and John Pope on upright bass.
The group was formed by guitarist Jordie who currently resides in the Lake District. "I try and write music that's a combination of everything I like to listen to. Compositions which incorporate storylines, drama, emotion and always strong melodies.
Our musical influences range from Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Jeff Buckley to Radiohead."
At the moment Wilbur's Fate are working toward producing their first album together.
Their debut performance will be at the Head of Steam, on Wednesday the 17th of August, showcasing all of their new compositions.
Head of SteamWednesday 17th August 2011. Doors: 7:30pm. £4.50.
The band’s demo can be heard at: http://wilbursfate1.bandcamp.com/album/wilburs-fate-ep.

Editor: I re-posted this as, after listening to the demo tracks, I'm really impressed and suggest that you too give them a listen and then get along on Wednesday to the Head of Steam.
