The project

Square One are an award-winning Glasgow-based quartet, known for their brand of heavy-hitting melodic jazz and energised live performances. Whilst their music blends folk-inspired lyricism with a gritty rock edge, it is an intelligent musical rapport that makes Square One much more than the sum of all these parts.
The quartet won the Peter Whittingham Jazz Award in 2015, which supported the release of their debut album ‘In Motion’, which has been nominated for ‘Album of The Year’ at the Scottish Jazz Awards 2017. They are now booking for a Spring/Summer 2018 in the UK and Europe.
