Roller Trio are a British Jazz-Rock trio, who formed whilst studying at Leeds College of Music in 2011. In 2012, their eponymous debut studio album was nominated for the Mercury Prize[1] and also nominated for MOBO Awards Best Jazz Act in 2012. In performance, John Fordham of The Guardian described their preview gig for the Mercury prize [as having] "the same wild insouciance that has made their sound a howl of fresh air."[2] DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson described their music as "Dark, menacing, bass heavy – the new sound of UK jazzzzzzz!"[3] They are known for their "epic memorably singalong melody hooks and blistering riffs".[4]
