Solo Series Phase II
posted on 19 July 2014
At best, a record is simply a document of a certain time and place. Solo Series Phase II, taking place over five years from inception in 2009 to release in 2014, is a wide-lens portrait of Ireland’s new musical landscape.
For me personally, however, it means something more. Adrian, Kate, Cora and Caoimhín are also great friends with whom I have shared more than a decade of musical adventures around the world – uniquely gifted musicians whom I have learnt so much from over the years and artists whom I have only the deepest respect for.
I feel privileged to have been party to sharing these journeys; four circuitous paths across wild terrain which converged, finally, on the top of the mountain, looking out. I am so happy to introduce this music to its audience at last, and I look forward to seeing it march on from here – sliding across the other side of the scree, and on into the world.

Award winning Jazz Quintet Thought-Fox launch their debut album on Diatribe
posted on 15 November 2012
Eric Pozza Canberra Jazz
Diatribe are proud to announce the release date for ‘My Guess’, the debut album from outstanding jazz quintet, Thought-Fox
Winner of Music Network’s Young Musicwide Award in 2010, Thought-Fox include some of the freshest improvisers on the Irish and UK jazz scenes, whose other-worldly compositions pivot around the powerful and gorgeous voice of Lauren Kinsella. Fellow foxes include trombonist Colm O’Hara, who has performed with luminaries such as Kenny Wheeler and Michael Brecker, and pianist Tom Gibbs, a stalwart of the Scottish jazz scene. Rhythmic propulsion comes courtesy of seasoned bassist Mick Coady and drummer Simon Roth.
Their debut record will be released at a free launch party on Saturday 1st December at The Grand Social in Dublin.
‘My Guess’ was produced by Nick Roth for Diatribe Records – Ireland’s leading record label for jazz, contemporary, new and improvised music. Founded in 1999, their catalogue is a roster of the most innovative and creative artists working in Ireland today. CD available to purchase from www.diatribe.ie
My Guess features original songs, mostly composed by Kinsella, a natural-born improviser blessed with a truly astonishing voice. On My Guess, Kinsella delves deep into personal experience and relationships to explore themes of loss and memory, and the idea of people moving on. A deliciously diverse collection of tracks that weaves together Kinsella’s beautiful lyrical flights and expressive improvisations with the virtuosic interplay of trombonist Colm O’Hara, anchored by the powerhouse rhythm section of Tom Gibbs on piano, bassist Mick Coady and drummer Simon Roth. The result is an exquisite, intoxicating, and sometimes edgy blend of voices that manages to maintain equilibrium while probing and pushing in different directions.
Hailed as “a completely down to earth and exquisitely vivacious young Irish singer” (Katie Bull, The New York City Jazz Record), Lauren Kinsella has performed in venues across Ireland, the UK, Switzerland, Hungary, Norway, Portugal, Germany and India. She completed her BA at Newpark Music Centre and has since studied with R.A. Ramamani in India, Mats Holtne in Sweden, and represented Ireland at the 19th IASJ meeting under Dave Liebman. She is currently pursuing her Jazz Masters at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music, London. Lauren has performed in festivals around the world including the Shiva Festival, Malleswaram, India, The Songlines Encounters Festival, London, The Cork Jazz Festival, The 12 Points Festival, Porto and The European Jazz Nights Festival, Oslo. Lauren is a member of other groups such as Blue-Eyed Hawk with trumpeter Laura Jurd, Lupo with Swiss singer Sarah Buechi, and duo collaborations with musicians such as Alex Huber, Mark Sanders and Francesco Turrisi.
