We are Charlie + Jake, a multi-instrumental live-looping duo from Bristol, UK. As a duo, we have been creating and performing jazz-infused original music at places like Ronnie Scott's, Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the Bristol Harbour Festival. We were also the house band of the week on BBC Radio Bristol. Since lockdown began in 2020, we have been putting on a monthly livestream show called Open Collab. For this show, we put out an open call for poetry submissions from all over the world. We then curate these submissions and improvise musical worlds around the performances live on the stream. We are very often genre-agnostic, letting the poetry lead us into anything from sonic soundscapes to soulful gospel grooves. Our latest original music has taken inspiration from all of these improvisations and ideas that we have been developing over the last year of creative, multi-disciplinary collaborations. This has resulted in a work-in-progress EP that combines all these things. "Creative genius" - The Everyday Magazine “Amazing collaboration project” - Adam Crowther (BBC Radio Bristol)
