Slowly Rolling Camera
DAVE STAPLETON composer, keyboards
DERI ROBERTS electronics, sound design
ELLIOT BENNETT drums
Since 2013 Slowly Rolling Camera have carved a path for themselves as one of the rising stars of the European Jazz scene. Praised for their intense and powerful live shows as well as receiving critical acclaim from the international press, their heavy grooves, unleashed hooks and extremely emotional contrasts has become a hallmark of their epic sound.
With two albums (Slowly Rolling Camera, 2014 – All Things 2016) and an EP (Into the Shadow, 2015) behind them, in 2017 they evolved as a unit, focussing more instrumentally, led by composer / keyboardist Dave Stapleton, drummer Elliot Bennett and producer / sound design artist Deri Roberts.
Deutschland Radio described the ‘way jazz and trip-hop merge in Slowly Rolling Camera’s music is genius’ whilst the Guardian announced the band as a ‘powerful newcomer with Rising Star written all over it. Superb!’.
Cardiff based purveyors of trip-hop & jazz epics return with their emphatic and uplifting third album in July 2018 with new instrumental roots, expansive jazz grooves and rich cinematic soundscapes.
