“Our jaws are still on the floor” (JTC Masterclasses). The Josh Meader trio is an instrumental powerhouse from Sydney, Australia, featuring Alex Hirlian (drums), Matt Thomson (keys) and “incredible young talent” (Jazz Guitar Today), Amsterdam-born Josh Meader (guitar). Successfully blending a multitude of genres, including modern jazz, funk, hip-hop and rock, the group “evokes a feeling of limitless horizons, creating cascading waves of melody and rhythm, thrilling and transportive” (SIMA). The JMT participated in Jazz Festival jam sessions in 2022 at Montreux and its first full album is eagerly awaited.
