George Crowley (https://www.georgecrowleymusic.com) is a saxophonist, clarinettist, composer and promoter based in London. Since his arrival in the capital in 2007, Crowley has steadily established himself as a key player within the city’s burgeoning creative jazz and improv scene, and increasingly well-known further afield, performing across the UK and Europe.

As a performer he is active across a range of styles; whether infusing melodic through-composed writing with open, searching improv in his own Can of Worms, channelling fiery avant-parade ghosts in Brass Mask, weaving through the polyrhythmic Ghanaian trance of Vula Viel or exploring more traditional repertoire, Crowley’s energy and expressive, warm saxophone sound mark him out as a musician who demands attention.

He can also be found playing with bands and musicians such as Melt Yourself Down, Julian Argüelles’ Septet, Yazz Ahmed, Red Snapper, the Michael Chillingworth Septet, Rick Simpson’s Klämmer and the Olie Brice Quartet featuring Jeff Williams. Outside of the world of jazz and improvised music he has worked with artists such as Boy George and Culture Club and Mount Kimbie.
