“One moment the wave-like, arpeggiated piano melodies are the stuff of dreams. The next moment the rhythm section gate-crashes the reverie so violently that what's being played seems not just a different piece, but a different idiom.”
- John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald ★★★★
Chaotic rhythms interweaved with cinematic swells and minimalist melodies - Brekky Boy blends instrumental electronic jazz to evoke the emotions felt when watching a Studio Ghibli film. Drawing on artists such as GoGo Penguin, BADBADNOTGOOD and Robert Glasper, the Montreux Jazz Award nominees have rapidly made a name for themselves as trailblazers in the Australian instrumental music scene.
The trio has sold out shows across the country, hosted the Montreux Jazz Festival official jam sessions in 2019 and 2022, supported Blue Note artist Ambrose Akinmusire and featured at festivals SXSW (US), Jazzahead (DE), BIGSOUND (AU), Melbourne International Jazz Festival AU, Tallinn Music Week EE & more.
Catch Brekky Boy on tour in Canada this June/July and Europe in August.
