Seb Rochford | Back

Originally from Aberdeen, Seb Rochford studied music in Newcastle, and over the past decade has become perhaps the busiest drummer on the UK scene, working across an astonishingly wide range of genres. In bands such as Acoustic Ladyland and Fulborn Teversham he may appear to be a full on rock drummer, but with groups such as Basquiat Strings and his own Polar Bear a subtler side of his musical personality is in evidence, and in performances with saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock he has demonstrated his profound acquaintance with the whole tradition of jazz drumming. In truth he is both a superb technician and a sensitive listener, who seems likely to continue to grace the jazz scene long after his hair has fallen out.
