Pianist Freyja Garbett is a compositional storyteller. Her pieces are through-composed journeys; they weave the listener through a series of magical sound-scapes, heavy grooves and unforgettable melodies. Her sound combines an eclectic array of musical genres including but not limited to traditional and contemporary jazz, soul, classical, afro-caribbean styles, funk and reggae. The sister of renowned trumpeter Nick, Garbett has spent the last few years exploring her compositional style whilst completing her undergraduate in Performance and Jazz Composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston, USA. Since returning to Australia, Garbett has been busy performing in various groups throughout Sydney and the Illawarra, whilst consistently exploring her own musical voice and expanding her vocabulary. In 2017 she was commissioned by SIMA and APRA AMCOS to compose an extended work to perform with the Sydney Women’s Jazz Collective for the 2017 Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival. Her band features other emerging jazz stars including 2018 National Jazz Award runner-up Alex Inman-Hislop on drums.
