PYJÆN take all the diverse forms of what is broadly called Jazz and bring them together to create a singular, emotional sound.
Formed in 2016, the band are Dani Diodato (guitar), Dylan Jones (trumpet), Ben Vize (sax), Benjamin Crane (bass) and Charlie Hutchinson (drums).
They released their debut self-titled album in 2019 to wide critical and public acclaim, garnering support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Huey Morgan, Jazz FM, and Clash Magazine to name a few. Their follow-up EP 'Sage Secrets' saw them collaborate with beatsy outfit Blue Lab Beats and soulful singer Odette Peters. The EP reached over 1M streams on Spotify in only 6 months, testimony that the band has become a major force in the UK "Jazz and beyond" scene.
Adventurous songwriting, meticulous timing, incredibly tight horn arrangements and an obvious joy to play together are the PYJÆN trademarks. Live, as seen at Love Supreme, Ronnie Scott's, the Jazz Cafe or Brainchild Festival, the atmosphere is sizzling and the sense of enjoyment communicated from the stage is infectious.
'PYJÆN have delivered something compelling and original, which these days is no small feat.'
