Bill Laurance releases Zeal EP

Nov 19, 2021

‘Music that is unconfined by genre,with effortless finesse. This is thebeautified sound of now.’

– Chris Phillips (JazzFM)

‘Laurance's music goes into overdrive with this powerhouse, symphonic collaboration.’

– Mike Flynn (Jazzwise)

It’s when we find ourselves in the most challenging situations, that we become our most resourceful and creative. Recorded through lockdown, this EP is inspired by our relationship with adversity and our underlying determination to overcome it.” – Bill Laurance

2021 saw the release of the Cables Rewired EP, acoustic reworking of 2 tracks from Cables together with the Manchester-based Untold Orchestra. Now comes a second EP: ZEAL. Recorded during the throws of lockdown, this unique project overcame the challenges of recording an orchestra remotely, and inspired by the pursuit of opportunity out of adversity. 

Featuring Jonathan Harvey on bass, Marijus Aleksa on drums, alongside the Untold Orchestra, ZEAL EP sees the return of Laurance’s better known aesthetic, combining symphonic melody and texture alongside hard-hitting grooves, swirling synths, and his unmistakable and unique piano sound.

To mark the release of the EP, Bill Laurance will be performing at this year’s London Jazz Festival with the Untold Orchestra at Union Chapel on 20th November 2021.
