The Chris Bland Trio were formed in 2015 when the three musicians had a chance encounter recording on a radio session in Leeds. The trio members are bassist Tom Rivière and drummer Steve Hanley. After the recording, the group decided to organise a play as a trio, and the resulting session was magical, with the group instantly clicking as musicians and friends.

Following the session, the band spent a year working through a wide repertoire of standards and composing their own original material, performing at venues throughout Yorkshire (including an opening support slot for Peter King at the prestigious Seven Jazz Club). In June 2017, the group went into the studio to record their debut album, and are currently looking at venues to book for the tour of the album.

If you are interested in booking the trio for your jazz club/venue/festival, or have any other questions or inquiries, feel free to get in touch.
