  • Description

    Jiem, a contemporary jazz quintet from Sydney, launch their debut album, a compelling showcase of their unique blend of jazz that pushes the boundaries both rhythmically and melodically. Co-led by horn players Tessie Overmyer and Miles Rooney, and supported by Mathew Harris on piano, Harry Birch on double bass, and Ryu Kodama on drums, the quintet crafts a sound that moves from the delicate to the virtuosic, reflecting their deep musical synergy.

    Emerging from Sydney's vibrant music scene, Jiem has quickly established themselves with a style that combines the influence from Australian jazz innovators such as Phil Slater, Simon Barker, and Andrea Keller, with their own dynamic and inventive approach. "Our new album represents a significant evolution from our previous work, emphasising the growth and cohesion we've achieved as a group," states Miles Rooney. The album features compositions that range from powerful ballads to complex improvisational pieces, highlighting the individual talents and collective strength of the ensemble.
