World Service Project is a unique British beast - 5 disillusioned soldiers who broke away from their battalion, leaving their King and Country behind to pursue a new path. Their exhilarating blend of anthemic punk jazz has been exported across the world alongside clear political soundings calling for humility, compassion and true collaboration.
Leading specialists of Brit ‘punk-jazz’, they are one of the most exported live acts in their field. Their energetic live shows have taken them to festivals across the world, touring in 18 countries and releasing four highly acclaimed studio albums.
This Spring 2018, WorldService Project launch their highly anticipated fourth album, 'Serve' on Rare Noise Records. Fresh off the back of mammoth tours across America, Europe, Japan, India and China, the epic and anthemic live sound of WorldService Project is both thrilling and heart-wrenching, with a theatrical live performance thrown in for good measure.
Supporting WSP tonight is Zeñel: Zoe Pascal, Noah Stoneman and Laurence Wilkins met through the young jazz scene in London in prestigious jazz programs like the Junior Jazz at the Royal Academy of Music and Tomorrow´s Warriors. They got together in 2016 to create original music, applying their jazz improvisation background to a MIDI based electronic set up.
“…stompingly raw and punky…a riotously entertaining live-band…highly creative” John Fordham, The Guardian
