Adam Ben Ezra
LONDON Southbank Centre / The Clore Ballroom
Enjoy the modern jazz and rock stylings of double bass performer Adam Ben Ezra. Using a smart combination of effects and pedals, Adam regularly loops his notes in order to deliver an authentic wall of sound, worthy of a small orchestra.
Also a multi-instrumentalist and YouTube sensation, with his channel boasting close to ten million views, Ezra has shared the stage with some of the world's fusion giants including Pat Metheny, Victor Wooten and more.
Whether playing original material or self-crafted cover arrangements, Adam is on a mission to bring his instrument from its status as a background note to the forefront.

There are many free stages to choose from every day. Israeli bassist Adam Ben Ezra is performing on a number including the opening day at 1pm on the Southbank Centre / Clore Ballroom free stage. Adam plays a specially adapted 5 string double bass and employs a percussive method of playing and sings too, with superb original material and a few rock and pop covers for a truly engaging and captivating show. We had him in session at Jazz FM and it was one of the highlights of the year.
