DINOSAUR, LED BY LAURA JURD, RELEASES NEW ALBUM ON EDITION RECORDS
We’re absolutely delighted to announce the signing of Dinosaur, led by Laura Jurd, and the release of their new album on 9th Sept 2016.
Dinosaur is led by multi-award winning BBC New Generation Artist, trumpeter and composer Laura Jurd. Over the last few years, Laura’s rise as one of the most creative young musicians, composers and scene creators has been meteoric.
Dinosaur, formerly the now extinct Laura Jurd Quartet, plays music influenced by a wealth of traditions including folk, minimalism and rock music. These four powerhouse new generation musicians (Laura Jurd: trumpet/fx, Elliot Galvin: keyboard, Conor Chaplin: electric bass, Corrie Dick: drums) never fail to create seismic shifts with their perfect blend of groove, melody and abandon.
Formed in 2010, Dinosaur have performed extensively in the UK and beyond including the Berlin Jazz Festival, Jazz Sur Son 31 in Toulouse and 12 Points Festival 2015.
With her new Dinosaur album Laura is primed and ready to launch a vibrant international career.
