RICHARD SPAVEN is respected Worldwide for his drumming skills and as a solo artist, his music is making big waves. So, what is Richard Spaven all about?
Richard Spaven… or Spaven, as we call him.
Spaven’s sublime intuitive drumming and his personable nature quickly established him as a favourite amongst the Jazz re:freshed faithful. In many ways, Spaven sums up what Jazz re:freshed is all about. By connecting the dots as he seamlessly traverses between genres, he weaves a thread of jazz throughout each one. He is as comfortable manning the kit behind classically trained piano virtuoso Robert Mitchell, as he was when touring the world with hall of fame hip-hop emcee (the late) GURU.
Spaven is equally at home when providing the percussive undertone to the futuristic sounds of maestro Mark de Clive Lowe and the prolific 4Hero. It is no surprise then that he is the backbone for jazz vocalist Jose James’ band as well as conducting the beats for The Cinematic Orchestra.
Spaven will be rocking with…
