Jade Gall is a UK-based saxophonist and flautist, hailed as having a “big, strong tenor sound with a beautiful sense of melody and swing … a musician to look out for in the future” by top UK trumpeter Steve Waterman. She has performed alongside top-class musicians from around the world, including: Allison Adams Tucker, Claire Martin, Clare Teal, Jason Rebello and Duncan Lamont; and has featured on BBC Radio broadcasts. As a classical saxophonist, Jade is a Fellow of Trinity College London (FTCL) in saxophone performance. She graduated with an MA in Music Performance from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in 2013 and has studied with top classical saxophonists Hannah Marcinowicz, Nigel Wood and Gerard McChrystal. As a jazz artist, Jade released her debut quintet album ‘Out With The Blues’ to critical acclaim in 2016, and has since performed as both bandleader and sideman at top jazz venues across the country.

Alex Wilson is a musician with a passion for the unusual, new and unexplored: a versatile pianist with interests ranging from cutting edge new music to fascinating repertoire by forgotten composers.  Alex is a former British Contemporary Piano Competition finalist, Park Lane Group Young Artist and performer of new music across Britain and Europe as soloist and chamber musician.  His self-curated tour of music by the lost composers of World War One ‘The Banks of Green Willow’ has achieved large audiences and received critical praise. He has performed at venues including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Cadogan Hall, and at the Rachmaninov Hall, Moscow, and has appeared on both BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 6 Music as a champion of contemporary music. Alex studied for a music degree at York University, and graduated from the Royal College of Music with a MA (distinction) in piano performance in 2011, following studies with Andrew Ball.
