Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra - Ambassadors
The Jazz Ambassadors of Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra are made up of the best soloists from the two bands which make up this renowned orchestra which is itself home to the best of Devon’s young jazz musicians.
As well as concerts and numerous events Devon Youth Jazz Orchestra also play at many of the main festivals in Devon including Dartmouth Music Festival and Budleigh Jazz Festival.
We are very excited to welcome Devon Youth jazz Orchestra to the Totnes Show Music Stage for the first time this year which is also the 40th anniversary of their formation.
Roz Harding, one of the regions’s top jazz musicians, is the Jazz Ambassadors specialist coach and leads their rehearsals.
A favourite at festivals, singer songwriter Sam has performed regularly and successfully in and around Devon and Cornwall at venues such as Mama Stones and The Phoenix. Sam has a large repertoire of songs, both upbeat and ballads and can perform over 100 covers from artists such as John Mayer and Bruno Mars.
Sam is already having a very busy year including having supported Luke Friend of the X Factor at The Barrel House recently, playing 3 gigs at Dartmouth Music Festival and singing on Glastonbury FM.
He has supported The Kinks original band as well as having opened the Kingsbridge Festival.
He has recently released his EP called “Building Blocks”.
Devil Say Dance
Making their debut on the Totnes Show Music Stage this year, Devil Say Dance are a rock band made up mainly of siblings whose family home is in Torquay.
Matt and Nick Williams and Louise Corner (nee Williams) together with band-mates Alice Elizabeth Taylor and Steve Harvey-Cook recently had their track Icarus Fly featured on The Lauren Laverne Show - BBC 6 Music.
"This stormy melodic track is a gem. It’s packed with delicate vocals and gentle hypnotic rhythms giving it a dreamy moody feel."
Since their self-recorded debut album Embers in January 2015 released on Foof Records, the album has triggered an extremely positive reaction from people both in the UK and abroad, receiving glowing reviews from American music reviewers Cerebral Rift and The Daily Vault:-
Devil Say Dance are ferociously independent, produce everything themselves from their music and artwork to photography and videos. Musically they draw their inspiration from a wide variety of artists including Sonic Youth, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, Elliott Smith, The Beatles, St. Vincent and Arcade Fire.
