Bassist Tim Thornton is a regular performer on the British jazz scene and graduate of Birmingham Conservatoire. He comes from a very musical background with his parents Neal Thornton (pianist/composer) and Sally Burgess (Mezzo Soprano/Director) influencing his early interest in the music world. His debut album 'New Kid' (SEHSO05) features Dave O'Higgins, Steve Fishwick, Ross Stanley, Grant Windsor, Chris Draper and Dave Hamblett performing a mixture of original music and arrangements. The quartet consists of Dave O'Higgins, Chris Draper and Grant Windsor who all star on the album. The band will be touring in February and March 2013 across the UK. The Tim Thornton quartet performs at many venues around the world but can most likely be found playing around London at venues such as Ronnie Scott's, Pizza Express Jazz Club, or the 606 Club. "the most natural young double-bassist in years." Jack Massarik, Evening Standard "Thornton is a player with a strong technique who uses the range of the bass well, and is capable of great depth, emotion and lyricism."
