Sarah’s Jazz Club is delighted to welcome back the talented Trio Frisson – one of the leading Soul bands in Cyprus – performing their unique blend of grooves on Saturday 10th December.
With funky 6-string basslines locked into ‘boom-bap’ drum beats; and a transition from Rhodes keyboard onto the grand piano for this venue, the band are excited to be returning to Sarah’s Jazz Club, this time with Alex Papadopoulos on drums.
Trio Frisson presents a vivid mixture of original songs and re-worked cover versions of favourite classics. Their impressive setlist betrays a wide range of influences, but mostly incorporates flavours of Soul & Funk, with occasional hints of Reggae & Hip-Hop.
Jamie Paul – vocals & piano
Byron Athinodorou – bass & b’ vocals
Alex Padapopoulos – drums
About the musicians
Jamie Paul (vocals & piano) is the songwriting force behind Trio Frisson. He writes about the universe, love, hate, joy and melancholy, and insists that all his stories must rhyme, and that all his rhymes must groove. He takes his stories and melodies to Trio Frisson, who magically turn them into songs. So successfully, in fact, that they have showcased their sound at major festivals, events and on a number of TV specials in Cyprus. Growing up in the UK, Jamie started his career as a musician at the age of 12 and in the years since, has worked with many different artists and has been involved in countless creative projects, relating to music and the industry.
