Soaring horns, jangly highlife guitars, Latin-Caribbean polyrhythms and rousing, socially/politically-charged lyrics collide in pulsing afrobeat and UK jazz conversation on First Home, the debut album by Leeds-raised 10-piece, TC & The Groove Family, forthcoming this June 2022 on the Gilles Peterson-approved, Bristol based label, Worm Discs.
Artist: TC & The Groove Family
Comprising members who learnt their chops performing across Leeds�۪s thriving live-music circuit, the band formed as the brainchild of drummer/percussionist and Midlands-raised, Tim Cook. All but one of the group studied at the renowned Leeds College Of Music and through their communion on the dancefloors/streets of Leeds�۪ famous Subdub, Leeds West Indian Carnival and at Cosmic Slop parties, TC & The Groove Family�۪s mixed-gender and multicultural��unit bring together a stylistic range that encompasses Soulful house/UKG-inspired vocals, King Tubby, post-punk/indie and DJ Shadow. Inviting such a disparate group of musicians might have seemed random at first but what was to follow was an unmatched sense of comfort and familiarity.
