About Adam

Current projects

I’m currently working with my regular trio/quartet (Eric Ford, Jakub Cywinski + Duncan Eagles), and we will be touring the new album over the next few months.

I’m also pianist in a Tango group, El Chamuyo Quartet, with Kamila Bydlowska (violin), Juan Mauro (bass) and Simon Cook (bandoneon).

I regularly play for musical shows, write Big Band charts and I have a weekly composition class I run for Morley College online. https://www.morleycollege.ac.uk/courses?s=jazz

Biography

Adam Dyer is a graduate of Christ’s College, Cambridge and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Having grown up playing classical music since the age of seven, he took to playing jazz piano in his mid-teens. Following his time at the Guildhall he travelled to Scandinavia to study jazz for two years on a scholarship.

He has performed with various well known jazz musicians, such as Bobby Wellins, Dan Berglund and Gregory Porter. In addition to performing also directs ensembles at Morley College and has hosted a jazz radio show on Phoenix FM. He has also worked with Bill Laurence (Snarky Puppy) as an arranger for his collaboration with the Morley College Big Band.

His trio with Eric Ford (drums) and Jakub Cywinski (bass), have recently recorded his debut album, River Spirit, with guest performer Duncan Eagles (saxophone). River Spirit consists mainly of original compositions, some of which have a Nordic-infused “ECM” sound, and others more closely follow the American tradition.
