Description

“One of the most exciting musicians working in Ireland at the moment”
GoldenPlec

Since the late 90s, pianist Paul G. Smyth has been carving a unique furrow into Ireland’s cultural landscape. Parallel to his involvement with The Jimmy Cake, Smyth has also set himself apart as a singular voice in Europe’s vigorous improvised music scene.

Since touring with Charles Gayle in 1999, he has worked with such luminaries as Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Peter Brötzmann, Keiji Haino, Barry Guy, Wadada Leo Smith, John Russell, Chris Corsano, Okkyung Lee, John Wiese, Lol Coxhill, John Butcher, John Edwards, Hannah Marshall, Alan Wilkinson, Mark Sanders and Damo Suzuki, among many others, been a member of synth trio Boys Of Summer (“the sound of John Carpenter being buried alive” – Le Cool Magazine), written music for theatre and installations, and performed in 17 countries.

In 2016, Smyth founded the London/Dublin-based record label Weekertoft with English guitarist John Russell. His own duo album with US drummer Chris Corsano, 'Psychic Armour', was released on the label in October to universal critical acclaim. 'Ditch School', a new album with John Russell, is due for digital release on the 30th of June.

“Considerable gifts as an improvisor … a genuinely cathartic listening experience … such fuck-you intensity” – The WIRE

"Paul G. Smyth performing live was one of the most mesmerising acts of musical ingenuity." - The Thin Air
