Square One is an award-winning Glasgow-based quartet, known for their free-spirited original music and energised live performances. The music they play alights upon many modern touchstones such as folk, fusion, soulfulness, ECM euro-cool and stylish, straight ahead jazz – yet it is a clear affinity with great melody and an intelligent musical rapport that makes Square One much more than the sum of all these parts. This vibrant four-piece are the proud recipients of the Peter Whittingham Jazz Award 2015 administered by Help Musicians UK for emerging jazz artists. In October 2016, they released their debut album ‘In Motion’ to acclaim by critics and listeners alike.
Square One features Joe Williamson on guitar, Peter Johnstone on piano, David Bowden on double bass and Stephen Henderson on drums.
