NUBYA GARCIA

Multi award-winning saxophonist and composer NubyaGarcia is back with her much anticipated debut album, SOURCE. Her first release on Concord Records, under the iconic Concord Jazz imprint, has been received with wide critical acclaim. Following her album release, the London-based UK jazz player extraordinaire debuted on Tiny Desk (Home) Concert for NPR, coming off the heels of a New York Times profile, a Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’ honour and a Rolling Stone ‘Album of the Month’ mention for the rising tenor saxophone player. The New York Times describes SOURCE as “a life’s worth of experiences into an hourlong listen,”while Q Magazine says “Elevated throughout by Garcia’s immaculate phrasing, this is music that fuses the tradition and modern with real purpose.”

Garcia studied under pianist Nikki Yeohat Camden Music, before joining Gary Crosby’s Tomorrow’s Warriors in her late teens and completed her training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music. She is a member of the experimental septet, Nerija, and has toured extensively internationally, playing in venues across LatinAmerica, Asia, Europe, Australia, and the United States. Garcia’s reputation as a DJ is also burgeoning; she currently helms a hit radio residency on NTS and plays a growing number of live sets across Europe.
