Ampersand are a five-piece group based in North London. They released their debut double EP 'Waking Up With Ghosts - Parts 1 & 2' at the end of 2022.
Fusing elements of folk, rock, jazz and classical music, the ensemble pay their dues to the music of the past while forging a sound distinctly their own.
Sharing inspiration with the baroque pop of the 60s and the neo-classical influences of bands like Talk Talk and Elbow, Ampersand's is a music that doesn't shy away from antiquity, but rather embraces all musical history as a source of inspiration.
Focused around the songwriting of singer and pianist Mark Young, the group’s sound is distilled through the production talents of bassist and producer, Tom Campbell, drummer Adam Williams, and the instrumental embellishments of guitarist Tom Stone and multi-instrumentalist Georgina Melling.
The group are currently busy recording their follow up EP, to be released later in the year.
