PEACE ON EARTH
Robert Stillman- Tenor Saxophone
Tom Challenger- Tenor Saxophone
David Okumu- Guitar
Tom Skinner- Drums
PEACE ON EARTH is a band comprised of saxophonist Robert Stillman, drummer Tom Skinner, and bassist Tom Herbert. The three musicians first played together in 1999 when Stillman was in London supposedly studying English literature, but actually frequenting the city’s various jam sessions. Fast forward 20 years, through various projects (Hello Skinny, Jade Fox, Sons of Kemet, the Invisible, Polar Bear, Acoustic Ladyland) and collaborations (Peter Zummo, Luke Temple, Ghostpoet, Kit Downes, Kano, Grizzly Bear, Matthew Herbert), the three unite as Peace on Earth to collectively channel their various life experiences into a musical initiation of the ideal their band-name suggests.
For this performance, which celebrates the release of Stillman’s new album Reality (Orindal Records), the band is augmented by guitarist David Okumu (the Invisible; Connan Mockasin; Anna Calvi) and saxophonist Tom Challenger (Fofoula; Brass Mask).
