About

Described as “An innovator" and “A gamechanger" by The Guardian, British guitarist Ant lives in London and leads his quintet, dubbed “An exciting band to hear live" by the Guardian.

The Ant Law Quintet’s debut ‘Entanglement’ was released in 2013 to great acclaim, followed by ‘Zero Sum World’ in 2015. They have toured extensively and their third album ‘Life I Know’ for Edition Records was released on the 9th of November 2018. The release was very warmly received by the press. It received 5 star reviews, made numerous “best of 2018″ lists, received airplay in the UK, Europe, Australia, and hundreds of thousands of plays (and counting) on Spotify. It is being described as “career-defining”. A fourth, digital only record, “The Sleeper Wakes” (Edition Records) was released in 2020.

Ant plays in Tim Garland’s band with Jason Rebello & Asaf Sirkis, featuring on albums ‘Songs To The North Sky’, ‘Return To The Fire’ & ‘ONE’ which was shortlisted for a Grammy and won the Jazzwise Best Album award. Ant is the “L” in Trio HLK who record/tour with Dame Evelyn Glennie. He has worked with other notables Cory Henry, Thomas Gould and is featured from time to time in “Total Guitar”, “Guitar Techniques” & “Guitarist” magazines. In the latter he recently made a list of “10 Astounding Virtuosos”.

2016 saw the emergence of the Art Of Rhythm Trio featuring Matt Ridley (bass) and Asaf Sirkis (drums & konnakol), notable for the the inclusion of Indian classical elements (check out the youtube videos) such as konnakol, the South-Indian spoken percussion, amidst all the jazz.
