Artist Biographies:

"Jim Bashford, who hails from Sutton Coldfield UK started playing drums age 10 and was influenced by the rock/progressive rock and jazz scene worldwide, he was mainly self taught for the first 6 years then he studied drums under Steve Palmer.

The CONSTRUCTION quartet formed by Jim performed a tour in 2010 of original compositions with Icelandic guitarist Hilmar Jensson, Johnny Brierley bass and Robin Fincker sax and clarinet. The quartet was then joined by Tim Harries on bass with a recording to follow called CENTRELINE THEORY which has recently been released on LEO Records 2017.

After 14 years of playing as a sideman in bands covering all genres and also working in construction full time whilst studying on a popular music course, Jim then moved on to study at the Birmingham Conservatoire for the BMus (Hons.) jazz course where he continued under drum tutors such as the great Tony Levin, Gene Calderazzo, Jeff Williams and Malcolm Garrett. He runs Auditions at the Birmingham Conservatoire and organises workshops with highly acclaimed artists on the jazz scene in Europe and the U.S. and also collaborates with Cheltenham Jazz Festival to run a session with the conservatoire students and Trondheim students as well as organising auditions for the course in the U.K. and Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

Jim is a member of no less than 20 different ensembles and tours extensively throughout the UK and Europe, including appearances at London jazz venues such as the Barbican Centre, The Vortex and Kings Place; and prominent venues in Birmingham. He has also performed in prestigious international jazz festivals including the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Juan le pins Jazz Festival and future engagements at the London Jazz Festival. Also a short tour with Dave Sinclair from the band Caravan with a recording in Japan to follow and also recently a European tour with Katie Melua."

"Pei Ann Yeo is a young violinist from Malaysia, currently doing a Ph.D. in Music at King's College London. She is also doing research on "how gender and race are treated in jazz performance."

She was born in Kuala Lumpur and has received her Fellowship Diploma from Trinity College London in both Solo Piano and Violin Performance. Following that, she pursued a Bachelor of Music at Queensland Conservatorium, Australia and Masters of Music at Birmingham Conservatoire, majoring in jazz violin performance. She is comfortable in Classical and Jazz styles.

Between 2011 and 2015, she held Visiting Tutor posts at several local universities in Malaysia. Pei Ann considers herself a minority in the sense that she is "a female musician in the male-dominated art form of jazz."

However, although Pei's being a minority gender-wise might be considered a disadvantage, her academic and artistic achievements demonstrate otherwise. She has given performances internationally and also been a member of the Organising Committee of TedxGoodEnoughCollege 2017."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"TriYeoh is a project that started when I was doing my postgraduate at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The idea is always to elevate what the violin can do in an avant-garde jazz setting. The movement of contrasts, in and between pieces, is what I hope to achieve with the ensemble.

I am indebted to Jim and Ash in putting together this ensemble. Jim is one of the most imaginative, versatile and humble drummers I have wored with. Ash instinctively knows where to place himself in the music and constantly gave us fresh ways of playing off each other."-Pei Ann Yeoh, from the liner notes
