Biography

Soweto Kinch is a jazz composer and arranger, alto saxophonist, and rapper. He was born in London in 1978, but brought up in Birmingham, where he is still based.

On graduating with a degree in Modern History from Oxford University, he joined Tomorrow’s Warriors; and in 2001 made his recording debut (on the Jazz Jamaica album Massive), and formed his own trio.

His two albums to date, Conversations With The Unseen (2003) and A Life In The Day Of B19: Tales Of The Tower Block (2006) combine bebop-style jazz with elements of hip-hop, soundscapes and spoken dialogue. The latter album, as the title suggests, is a concept album about life in Birmingham, the narrative of which is to be continued on his next album, due out in 2007.
