BREACH came about when three of Scotland's most progressive and versatile musicians started hanging out and playing together. An organ trio that avoids the cliches of the format, each member draws out surprising sounds and composes material drawing from electronica, rock and folk worlds as well as jazz. All share the desire to enter new territory and trample over musical preconceptions. Guitarist Graeme Stephen is well known as a highly original guitarist and composer with various groups including NeWt, Fraser Fifield and his own Sextet. Winner of the 2011 Scottish Jazz award for Best Instrumentalist he was selected for the Take Five professional development scheme in 2008.
