Ishmael Ensemble

Having expanded last year from multi-instrumentalist Pete Cunningham’s solo project – Ishmael – into a six piece group, Ishmael Ensemble have begun releasing music that will make up their debut album, ‘Severn Songs’. The first in a series of seven-inch releases features two tracks, ‘The Chapel’ and ‘Full Circle’.

All the songs that will eventually make up the album are inspired by Cunningham’s hometown of Bristol and the surrounding area. The two newly released jazz and electronic-influenced instrumentals conjure broad scenes of bustle and calm.
