The prodigious, head-turning keys player with ludicrous chops on the piano has brought together some of the UK's finest performers into a band that effortlessly combine skittering rhythms and soaring melodies into a dazzlingly complex sound that’s made them one of the most exciting live acts in the EU at the moment.
As well as being a founding member of the Ezra Collective, Armon-Jones has performed with a wide range of artists from Pharoahe Monch to ATA KAK and is a regular fixture in the bands of Nubya Garcia & Mr Jukes.
In September 2017 Joe released a duo project with producer Maxwell Owin entitled 'Idiom', which was released on Peckham based label YAM Records, selling out within days of release.
Joe's debut album, Starting Today, released on 4th May 2018, has since received over 2.5 million plays on Spotify, sustains over 180,000+ monthly listeners and the tracks are consistently featured on taste-making, Spotify-curated playlists like UK Jazz, The State of Jazz, Poolside Disco and many more. Tracks from the debut album are frequently supported on BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC Radio 2, NTS, Solid Steel Radio, Balamii, Worldwide FM, and in particular BBC Radio 6’s UK Jazz Special at Maida Vale with Gilles Peterson. Nominated for Best Jazz Album at the Worldwide Awards, Armon-Jones is a staple in the UK - and world - jazz scene.
