Since their formation in 2007, the multi award-winning quartet Empirical have steadfastly maintained their position as one of the UK’s most exciting jazz ensembles. Empirical’s rare instrumentation has proved the perfect vehicle for the band’s invariably complex compositions and distinctive signature sound.

Empirical have released five critically acclaimed studio albums to date and have featured at major jazz festivals including North Sea Jazz, Jazz sous les Pommiers, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Newport, New York, Molde, and Berlin and London jazz festivals. They are two-time recipients of the UK Parliamentary Jazz Award (2008 and 2016 ‘Best Jazz Ensemble’) and won the 2016 Urban Music Award and the 2010 MOBO Award for ‘Best Jazz Act’.
