Finn Silver

New Urban Jazz

Fridolijn van Poll (vocals); Ben van Gelder (alto saxophone); Tony Roe (keyboards); Kasper Kalf (bass); Richard Spaven (drums); Mark Berman (electronics).

Fridolijn van Poll's voice can sound deceptively innocent. But make no mistake: the broken beats of the rest of the band give Finn Silver a definitely vicious edge. The band's debut album Crossing The Rubicon did well in the Netherlands last year and iTunes Holland named them Breakthrough Jazz Artist of the Year. Outside the Netherlands they did even better: in Japan the single Roadtrip was downloaded 60,000 times. A tour followed and the album was released in twelve countries, including China. And all this is just the beginning for Finn Silver. Alongside Van Poll, the band includes saxophonist Ben van Gelder, London-based drummer Richard Spaven (José James/Flying Lotus) and Kasper Kalf on bass. They back Van Poll's mysterious songs with a mix of jazz, pop and dance beats.
