Calum Gourlay | Back

Born in Glasgow in 1986, Calum Gourlay took up the bass at the age of 14: within a couple of years he had become a member of Tommy Smith's Youth Jazz Orchestra, then graduating to the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra.

In 2004 he moved to London to enrol in the Royal Academy's jazz course, and even before graduating had started to make waves on the scene, gigging widely and recording in New York with saxophonist Seamus Blake. In recent years he has become best known as a member of the acclaimed Kit Downes Trio, but continues also to work with many other rising stars, and to lead his own quintet.
