Slowly Rolling Camera
Slowly Rolling Camera formed in Cardiff in 2013 and brought together four wildly talented musicians from diverse backgrounds in vocalist & lyricist Dionne Bennett, composer / keyboardist Dave Stapleton, drummer Elliot Bennett and producer / sound design artist Deri Roberts. The result was a captivating hybrid of these influences: trip hop, jazz, soul, electronic music fused into a new and unique soundscape. The product was their eponymous album, released on Edition Records in February 2014, described by the Guardian as a ‘powerful newcomer with Rising Star written all over it. Superb!’.
Live, they’ve proved a phenomenon, wowing audiences from Cardiff to Hamburg and at high profile festivals including Umea Jazz Festival (SE), Love Supreme (UK), Lotus (PO), London Jazz Festival (UK) and Reeperbahn Festival (DE).
In May 2014 Slowly Rolling Camera released their album in Germany to overwhelming critically acclaim from specialist and national press. Praised for their heavy grooves, unleashed hooks and extremely emotional contrasts, the Deutschland Radio described the ‘way jazz and trip-hop merge in Slowly Rolling Camera’s music is genius’.
