Chube is a young jazz fusion band based in Cardiff, South Wales. The group was set up by Ben Creighton Griffiths (Harp, Keys) and Matthew Williams (Drums, Engineering) in 2015 after several years of playing together. They wrote their first tracks and recorded demos in 2016 before being joined by Aeddan Williams on bass for the recording of their first EP in summer 2017.
Chube draw their inspiration from a wide variety of artists and genres and aim to write electro acoustic music that pushes the boundaries of their instruments. The harp features prominently in their performances, and there is regular usage of effects processors with the harp to take the harp from it’s regular, classical sound, to a rock guitar through distortion, an ambient synth through delays and phasers, and much more.
“Tonight’s performance was a triumph for both Chube and BMJ and there seems to be a real buzz building about this exciting and talented young band. If they were based in London rather than Cardiff their names would probably be all over the jazz media. Look out for Chube, all the signs are there that bigger things await.” – Ian Mann, 31/03/19, The Jazz Mann Review
