MIKE DE SOUZA'S CHRYSALIS GROUP

Vortex Jazz Club, N16 8AZ , [Venue Details]

Mike De Souza grew up in Hertfordshire, where he first picked up the guitar at the age of 12, marking the start of a life-long obsession with music.

His professional career began at the age of 20, and he has now completed 5 UK jazz tours, has performed festivals internationally in Krakow (Jazz Juniors 2021), Graz (Jazzwerkstatt 2017) and northern Spain (Ni CaJazz! and EGA Jazz festivals 2022), and has performed at many prestigious jazz clubs including Ronnie Scott’s, and Pizza Express, to name a few.

Since moving to London in 2012, he has worked with internationally renowned musicians including Terence Blanchard (2016), Martin Speake, and Byron Wallen, and has featured on numerous recordings as a side-man: Times Leap (Simon Read Octet), Reflector (Twospeak), Beware of the Bear (Phil Meadows), and Music for Bosch People (Alex Paxton).

Currently, Mike leads his latest project ‘Chrysalis’ performing original music composed during the pandemic. The band name alludes to the emergence from a state of isolation, having changed in a positive way, just as a butterfly emerges transformed from its chrysalis state. The band features some of the most distinctive improvisers on the London Jazz scene including Alec Harper (Sax), Rupert Cox (Keys), Huw V Williams (Bass) and Jay Davis (Drums).
