This month, KAIYO expands into a quartet featuring Australian saxophonist, Brandon Allen.

KAIYO presents the unique talents of each player in a collective and interactive format, communicating musical adventure, playfulness, lyricism, and fun.

'KAIYO’s music is welcoming and surprising, respecting the jazz tradition as well as presenting original material.'

'KAIYO’s approach to improvising is collective, spontaneous and ensures that each performance is fresh and fun.'

Brandon Allen relocated to London in 2000. Since arriving in the UK, he has worked with many established artists from various genres, in particular Jazz. Brandon is also the saxophonist with the Kyle Eastwood Band, touring internationally. He has performed with Eric Clapton, Paloma Faith, Kyle Eastwood, Gary Husband, Stefano Di Battista, Adam Nussbaum and Tony Lakatos.

BRANDON ALLEN - “a saxophone heavyweight, at the height of his powers” BLUES AND SOUL MAGAZINE

'Brandon Allen is arguably the most exciting tenor player in Britain today. His phrasing is unashamedly emotional, soaked in the blues tradition.' Jazzwise
