Devoted to spreading inspiration in music, Dave Drake is a pianist of the highest calibre.
Dave Drake began playing at age 4 after becoming fascinated by his father’s vinyl collection, and his journey has continued long and far since those early explorations.
Having moved to NYC to pursue music and study at the New School for Jazz, he has encountered many kindred spirits and valuable mentors. Drake is a student of Jason Moran, Fred Hersch and Sophia Rosoff, all of whom have greatly enhanced his musical growth and development.
He returns to the UK for another trio performance at his beloved home-town jazz club, with his two highly-esteemed musical companions Tim Thornton (bass) and Pete Hill (drums). This will be a premiere of new compositions, so we look forward to seeing you!!
