Corrie Dick is a musician celebrated for his fluency, gritty sound and euphoric abandon on the drum kit. In recent years he has caused a stir in the UK and European jazz scene with his prolific and diverse activity, touring with Dutch sax tyro Maarten Hogenhuis, Azeri pianist Isfar Sarabski and trumpet sensation Laura Jurd’s ‘Dinosaur’ and ‘Human Spirit’. His critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Impossible Things’ displays his flair as composer/lyricist, triumphantly uniting Celtic folk and jazz with African influences.
Having won BBC’s “Young Scottish Jazz Musician of the Year” in 2013, Corrie has honed his musicianship within the renowned Chaos Collective – an organisation & label founded by Corrie alongside his closest collaborators; BBC New Generation artist Laura Jurd and European Jazz Artist of the Year Elliot Galvin. He is a crucial element in prog-jazz outfit Blue-Eyed Hawk as well as ‘Qualia’, the new project of Phronesis’ Jasper Høiby. The young master of contemporary grooves has studied traditional music in Ghana & Morocco where the rhythm is rich and layered, and also in his homeland, Scotland, where rhythm and melody have melded for centuries. Corrie is an original, open-minded questing talent who is destined to make a very important musical mark in coming years.
