Who we Are
Ezra Collective is the award-winning band born out of London; first coming onto the scene in May 2012 when they were victorious in the Yamaha Jazz Experience Competition. They were blown away at the standard of Ezra Collective’s set and the advanced musicianship demonstrated by the band. This lead on to an award which saw Ezra support Terence Blanchard in London Jazz Festival 2012. Since then they have gone on to headline various festivals and play in different clubs around London and beyond. This includes Royal Albert Hall and Festivals up and down the UK. The strong influence of Afro Beat, Reggae and Hip Hop, tied together by tuition and understanding of jazz creates the unique Ezra Collective sound. Ezra Collective have also been used as rapper Pharoahe Monch’s live band further demonstrating their versatility in musicianship and other noticeable collaborations in hip hop such as TY. They continue to push boundaries of live music creating a unique blend of Afro Beat, Hip Hop and Reggae, tied together with a love of jazz. EZRA Collective’s debut EP Chapter 7 is now available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
