The House Always Wins is DSQ’s second. With rave reviews for their previous releases in the Guardian, Observer and Jazzwise, The House Always Wins confirms his reputation and promise. With the exceptional talents of Paula Gardiner on bass and Elliot Bennett on drums, this is an album of powerful, driving rhythms and lingering melodic hooks. With the highly individualistic sound of Jonny Bruce on trumpet and impressive multi-instrumentalist Ben Waghorn on reeds, Stapleton has put together a band of high-rollers and high stakes winners.

“Deft melodies and hard hitting grooves make his music genuinely kick-ass…” Time Out
