Spindle Ensemble are performing a tour of intimate venues across the UK to celebrate the release of their second album 'Inkling' (Hidden Notes Records).

Their music sits somewhere between classical and contemporary, always melodic and instantly recognisable by their unique instrumentation for a chamber quartet:

Daniel Inzani - piano, Celtic harp, accordion
Caelia Lunniss - violin
Harriet Riley - marimba, vibraphone
Jo Silverston - cello

The quartet was formed in 2016 by bandleader and composer Daniel Inzani, accompanied by a versatile classically trained musicians who also perform a huge variety of other styles across the UK. They continue to bring their music to a diverse and ever growing audience.

The quartet recorded Inkling at various venues across Bristol, capturing their performances as unique 3D sound images enabling the listener to hear each instrument's position mimicking the audible experience as a live audience member. Unlike their debut BEA, some of the compositions on Inkling also features a collection of guest musicians expanding their sound to an orchestral scale, featuring the addition of brass and percussion instruments.

Listeners may hear influences from composers such as Satie, Pärt, Ravel, Reich, Glass and Moondog in their music but might also find the soundtracks of Morricone and the minimalist aesthetics of the Penguin Cafe Orchestra nestled alongside the more experimental leanings of groups such as Rachel’s, Esmerine, Bell Orchestre and Amiina.


"Philip Glass-style minimalism, Morricone-esque exotica, Japanese-inflected C&W and Satie-ish romanticism." The Guardian

"Beautiful sounds, definitely a band to watch…" Fiona Talkington, BBC Radio 3 Late Junction

"Such a rich live feel" Gideon Coe, BBC Radio 6 Music

“If you love to be delighted by fluid and sparkling musical arrangements and instrumentation you will greatly enjoy this record.” Nick Luscombe

"The quartet mixes post-classical and minimalism, with brief stylistic dalliances; Okemah Sundown hints at folksy Americana,while Waves has a neo-romantic vibe..." Big Issue
