Having firmly established herself as a pianist withing the UK, Rebecca Nash is now garnering an international reputation for her distinctive sound, full of artistry and heart.
Redefining Element 78 (Whirlwind Recordings) was commissioned by Bristol Jazz Festival and is Rebecca’s latest project and follow-up album to Peaceful King (Whirlwind Recordings). It presents a new compositional voice of increasing clarity. Distilling elements of her previous album and fusing them together with classical influences such as late Scriabin, Debussy, and Bartok along with free improvisation and post tonal approaches, this music is an exciting new departure.
Rebecca also works closely with singer-songwriter Sara Colman; the pair are currently preparing to release a joint album on Stoney Lane Records entitled Ribbons. She also regularly collaborates with trumpeter/producer Nick Walters with whom she hatched a new band in lockdown called Sarsen Drift. They will be releasing on Dear Old Thing Records in due course.
Musical highlights include: the EFG London Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, We Out Here Festival, The World Economic Forum, Love Supreme Festival, Manchester Jazz Festival, and Ronnie Scott’s amongst others. Rebecca recently gave a broadcast for BBC Radio 3’s J to Z, as well as a solo performance at Turner Sims for International Women’s Day.
Rebecca regularly works as an educator for the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, THSH’s B:Music, National Youth Jazz Collective, Earthsong Flagship Programme, and Cheltenham Festivals. She has also worked as a visiting tutor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
