Hypnotising and powerful minimal music. Scottish drummer and composer Graham Costello
creates minimalist music that ranges from ambient and post-rock, to jazz improvisation and
groove. Primarily with his band STRATA, he has been nominated for Scottish Album of the Year, as well as eight Scottish Jazz Awards. STRATA’s energetic and organic improvisation, alongside the hypnotising patterns and feel of minimalism has been described as “a meteorite on the scene and beyond.” (The National)
Costello and his peers are among the prominent new Scottish jazz artists bursting into the UK jazz scene, including corto.alto and Fergus McCreadie. After his widely-praised debut album OBELISK in 2019, Costello signed to Gearbox Records (Binker and Moses, Abduallah Ibrahim, Theon Cross). In May 2021, he released his follow-up album with STRATA: Second Lives, to critical acclaim, with top UK jazz publication Jazzwise naming it one of the “Best Jazz Albums of 2021”.
“Graham Costello’s Strata can justifiably be classed amongst the very best of the British jazz
revolution.” – Louder Than War
“Glasgow’s jazz scene is becoming increasingly enviable with its penchant for dissolving the
notion of genre. At its epicentre is drummer and composer Graham Costello.” – Downbeat
