Marco Woolf

Marco Woolf is this week’s special guest in The Moonshine Sessions.... the future sound of jazz came to our studio to play a special cover of Tirzah’s ‘Devotion’ plus his own experimental composition ‘Devotion’.

Delicate yet dramatic, Marco’s music is introspective yet evokes the sense of being led on a journey as each story conjures a real sense of atmosphere which envelopes the listener and leads them through complexed narratives built on insightful lyrics and experimental arrangements. Last year saw the release of his stunning debut EP ‘self’ which is five compelling tracks that reveal just how truly gifted he really is.

Marco’s band consists of pianist Liviu Gheorghe, drummer Ruben Sheridan and Aaron Wood playing trumpet.
