Clash x Metropolis Studios Sessions Return With Theon Cross March 10th

Win tickets to attend an intimate recording experience in Studio A at Metropolis...

Theon Cross might be one of the most adventurous spirits within the UK jazz community right now.

As a musician, collaborator, songwriter, and band leader, he's worked tirelessly to pursue a single-minded, yet completely open, musical vision. A musician expanding the possibilities of his chosen instrument – the humble tuba – his 2019 debut album ‘Fyah’ was an exhilarating fusion of post-bop jazz and club culture hewn from the streets of London, and beyond.

His follow up second record ‘Intra-I’ remains very much in this lane, with single ‘We Go Again’ ramping up the temperature. The jazz composer pushes his tuba to the limits, and this idiosyncratic innovation blazes through the record. Features from Remi Graves and Consensus stand out, but the fulcrum is Theon and his inquisitive compositional sense. With ‘The Spiral’ acting as a key moment, a fusion of individual voice and collective endeavour, it’s clear that his journey has only just started. 

Exploring these themes of renewal, it's particularly apt then that Theon joins us to play live on March 10th – reigniting our Clash x Metropolis Live Session series in London with a 75-minute set. As space is extremely limited selected recordings and an interview from the show will be made available following the event for anyone who cannot join in person.

Theon comments: "'We Go Again' is about choosing to forgive ourselves from moments of ignorance in our past and making the conscious decisions to embrace a new day of reinvention and growth. Although lockdown has been challenging, it’s also given us time to reflect and think about the changes we wish to see once we return to normalcy. I look forward to the return of live performances and having the privilege to present new music, new ideas and a new outlook."

As this is our first Clash Live outing for a while post-Covid we are keeping audience numbers down initially – so this will truly be an intimate recording experience. We have five (5) pairs of tickets available for yourself and a friend to join us for an incredible evening of music live recorded in Studio A at the world famous Metropolis Studios

To enter for a chance to attend simply fill in the form below and pencil the date in your diary.  Entries close at 5.30pm BST next Tuesday 1st March. 

Winners will be selected at random and contacted next week via email – keep your eyes on your inbox folks.
