'Chambr' is an acoustic ensemble combining violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar and percussion led by award winning guitarist/composer Nick Tyson.

Influences from jazz, downbeat, classical chamber, folk and middle-eastern traditions are explored within Tyson's delicate writing to produce an exciting new voice for British music.

Featuring members of 'The Leisure Society', 'Eyes Shut Tight', 'Finzi Quartet, 'Gentleman's Dub Club' and 'Heritage Orchestra' to name a few - this eclectic line up is moulded by Tyson's writing to create captivating and thoughtful music.

The compositions showcase the ensemble moving seamlessly through richly textured sound-scapes, melodic string passages, intricate grooves, from stripped back minimalism to full on solos.

The project was launched in April 2012 at London's Vortex followed by a critically acclaimed UK tour.

The debut album, produced by Ben Lamdin - Nostalgia 77, will be released on F-IRE records in October 2012.

'Chamber' hasĀ received a Performing Rights Society Foundation for New Music (PRSF) 'new works' award, as well as tour funding from Arts Council England and is commissioned by the influential London based F-IRE Collective.

"Distinctive and brave" Stephen Graham - Jazzwise/Guardian

"Tyson's compositional textures have an expansive, cinematic and orchestral quality that fully immerse the listener" Louis Archer - Jazzwise

"Elegant and impressive" Chris Hodgkins - Jazz UK
