Square One is an award-winning Glasgow-based quartet, winners of the Peter Whittingham Jazz Award 2015. Known for their free-spirited original music and energised live performances, the music they play alights upon many modern touchstones such as folk, fusion, soulfulness, ECM euro-cool and stylish, straight-ahead jazz – yet it is a clear affinity with great melody and an intelligent musical rapport that makes Square One much more than the sum of all these parts.
In October 2016, they released their debut album ‘In Motion’ to acclaim by critics and listeners alike, along with an international tour.
Square One features four musicians at the forefront of Scotland’s jazz scene – Joe Williamson on guitar, Peter Johnstone on piano, David Bowden, Young Scottish Jazz Musician of The Year 2017 on double bass and Stephen Henderson on drums.
”A soulful and empathetic band with an irresistible charisma’’ Julian Joseph, BBC Radio 3
