FRIDA. is an exciting new 7-piece ensemble lead by pianist Stella Roberts. The band combines the sounds of a traditional string quartet with a jazz piano trio and focuses on integrating the two genres of instruments through writing and performance.
Stella has been composing for the band over the last year, drawing influences from an eclectic range of styles and musicians including Bill Frisell and the 858 Quartet, to Bjork's seminal album 'Homogenic'.
Having just performed at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, FRIDA will be releasing their debut album, summer 2015, and look foreward to upcoming gigs in the UK.
