"Talk about your dynamic duos. Drummer/bassist Tony Bianco and violinist/violaist Faith Brackenbury have pooled their talents to come up with one of the best such meetings in recent memory." - Darren Bergstein, DMG NYC

A no holds barred free jazz duo equally balancing fire / momentum with space / texture.

Faith – “Everything is first takes and no edits, and so captures some raw feelings. It feels to me that all my learning and training, and unlearning and exploration has come to this point in a deep connection with Tony’s own musical flow.”

Tony – “It’s like providence brought us together…to get through these times…but also to explore our constantly expanding ideas and concepts in music.”

Tony Bianco is a drummer, percussionist and composer born in New York City, who has worked in a career spanning many years with a who’s who of improvised music: Dave Liebman, Alex Schlippenbach, Aki Takase, Paul Dunmall, Elton Dean, Paul Rutherford, Keith Tippett, Paul Rogers, John Edwards and recently Evan Parker and many others.

Faith Brackenbury studied violin classically at music school, diversifying into jazz, folk and rock at university. Her path has wound through violin making, a jazz post grad at Birmingham conservatoire, playing and recording with saxophonist Martin Speake, a long time collaboration with indie-classical composer Tiny Leaves, alongside motherhood. Her KnifeAngel suite was released in 2019.
