Formed in 2016, Aloft Quartet released their debut album «First Year» (AMP Music & Records) in January 2018 and has since then taken a strong hold on the nordic jazz scene. Touring in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany the band has played on venues and festivals such as Jazzhus Montmartre and Copenhagen Jazz Festival, Tversted Jazzy Days (DK) and Dølajazz, Lillehammer (NO). On the 12th of November 2018 Aloft Quartet received the Danish Music Awards prize «New Jazz Name of the Year». Soon recording their second album, they are going on tour again to present entirely new music as well as music from «First Year» (which can be found on most streaming platforms). The sound of the band is a distinct and dynamically varied soundscape of the four musicians merging together as one. Aloft Quartet has gotten a distinguished response and a strong reputation for their dynamically vivid and emotionally moving music. The band members are accomplished musicians in their early twenties, who are now based in four different places: Berlin, Malmö, Gothenburg and New York City. Simon Balvig (Aarhus, DK): Alto- and baritone saxophone Rasmus Sørensen (Sæby, DK): Piano Jon Henriksson (Gothenburg, SE): Double Bass Amund Kleppan (Lillehammer, NO: Drums
