about

Forged in Sydney's suburban hustle and bustle, the musicians in Grey Wing Trio realised their distinct musical rapport and hyper-lyrical zeal when they first played three years ago.

Luke Sweeting (piano), Ken Allars (trumpet) and Finn Ryan's (drums) improvising plays off compositions that are often delicate and texturally versatile. Described as intriguing and impulsive and, yes, epic, Grey Wing Trio playfully explore alternate forms and endings, discovering in-the-moment colours.

Luke Sweeting is an incredible pianist and composer, having toured with Swedish-Australian ensemble Svelia, the Antipodes Sextet and various projects. His previous releases include "People and Lightbulbs" (Luke Sweeting Sextet) and duo album "The Great Unknown" with vocalist Rachael Thoms. He has also recorded and arranged with the Australian 2012 Generations in Jazz vocal winner Liam Budge.

Ken Allars has already the ears of the nation, performing on the Australian ARIA award winning album Hear and Know by Mike Nock and also winning the James Morrison Generations in Jazz scholarship in 2011.

Finn Ryan is distinctly remarkable for his improvising with the electro-acoustic trio 3ofmillions, the free style African Dance ensemble Prophets and his strong connection with Sydney/European improvising legends Jim Denley and Tony Buck.

Grey Wing Trio draw their music from diverse influences; certainly jazz with heavy interests from twentieth century and early classical music, folk traditions and texture-based improvisational music. The band's name pays homage to a peaceful and now rare Australian budgerigar: the Greywing.
