Sarah Gail Brand (trombone) and Mark Sanders (drums) have worked together since 1998 and as a duo since 2007. The empathy and understanding between the two is instantly recognisable on their 1st release Instinct And The Body and on their upcoming 2nd record, due for release in late 2015/early 2016. It is adventurous, expressive and accessible music played with verve and power, intuitive and muscular. Their duo is a demonstration of the strength of the new music scene and an indication of where it’s going.
