Outhouse began as a music project in a humble garden shed six years ago, but have now evolved into a group which is one of a swathe of bands heralding a new heyday for young British jazz music. The success of their inaugural recording acted as a launch pad for the musicians at the group’s core and each has gone on to become renowned individually for their work. They have collaborated with Gambian Wolof percussionists as their incarnation Outhouse Ruhabi, toured extensively across continents and have changed their core quartet line-up. Not content unless they are reconstructing their sound from a new perspective, the latest record Straw, Sticks and Bricks sees them collaborate with renowned Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson, known internationally through his work with Jim Black.
Outhouse launch their third record Straw, Sticks and Bricks with a UK tour and London album launch date featuring a solo set from Hilmar Jensson on April 23rd at The Forge in Camden. Buy London album launch tickets >
