"Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott's," one fan suggests, "where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime"

"'If This Is The End' is a multilayered gem of tremendous complexity, but always coherent and never less than compelling. Project Blackbird have crafted an intelligent, thought-provoking album that will linger long in your memory….utterly beguiling" – Andrew R Houghton, GIGsoup

The UK-based Project Blackbird's four core members are vocalist Ming Nagel (originally from the USA), guitarist Alan Roberts, multi-instrumentalist Jamie Varley, and multi-instrumentalist Jon Read, former trumpet player for The Specials. Joined tonight by Eddie Dublin on drums and Hari Trivedi on tabla & percussion.

This "extraordinary" band, as BBC 6Music's Tom Robinson has described them, offers an atmospheric, genre-fluid listening experience that draws equally upon intellect and emotion. They have been championed by BBC Leicester's Uncle Frank (Frank Benbini of Fun Lovin' Criminals) as well as an increasing number of independent stations and presenters, and continue to compel album listeners and gig audiences alike. "Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott's," one fan suggests, "where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime".

The band's second full-length album, If This Is the End, is currently available on CD, double gatefold vinyl, mp3 download, and a variety of streaming platforms.
