LONDON Union Chapel
A trio of exceptional artists: multi-instrumentalist and producer Jherek Bischoff, saxophonist Robert Stillman, 12 string guitarist Anders Holst, and vocalist and jazz guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor will draw upon the chapel’s resonant acoustics.

Bischoff is currently composing music for two new theatre productions, scoring for film and television, and regularly releasing new music with direct fan support via Patreon.
Saxophonist/composer Stillman and guitarist/composer Holst have collaborated closely since meeting in 2012, most notably in their trio
Bog Bodies (also featuring drummer Sean Carpio), and in the Moondog 100år festival in 2016, which premiered of unpublished work by the American composer. Both Stillman and Holst’s musicuses improvisation to juxtapose and integrate the languages of jazz, blues, and folk music with the left-field worlds of drone, minimalism, and experimental electronic music. This duo performance for Daylight Music will draw upon the resonant Union Chapel acoustic as a platform for the expansive sonics of the 12-string guitar and saxophone, exploring repertoire by Stillman and Holst alongside works by Ornette Coleman, John Fahey, and Moondog.
Emerging songwriter, jazz guitarist, ukuleleist, vocalist Rosie Frater-Taylor is credited as ‘One To Watch in 2019’ by Jazzwise Magazine. At 20 she is creating her own sweet and unique sound influenced by folk and singer-songwriter vibes but grounded in her virtuoso jazz roots.

A mature collection of songs demonstrating her natural affinity with the guitar and love of multi-layered acoustic soundscapes.
