WorldService Project have been quietly achieving many exciting projects over the last few years; a 35 date tour of the USA across 17 states, appearances at some of Europe's most thrilling festivals (Ljubljana, Umea, Tampere, Jazz sur son 31 to name a few) and most recently a huge tour of China, visiting reknowned clubs and festivals in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Shenzhen and Guangzhou. 

Oh, as well as launching the European touring network/festival Match&Fuse and performing 150 other gigs across another 12 countries

Awards include the Peter Whittingham Jazz Award and finalists of the Young European Jazz Ensemble 2014 (Burghausen)

"Like Downton Abbey run by anarchists...a mesmerising combination of brutality and dark humour. Their live sound, blending bleeding chunks of free brass noise with the ironic sentimentality of tracks like ‘Requiem for a Worm’, has only got better. The razor-sharp rhythmic edges are polished, the ensemble is painfully slick, and you can smell the rubber burning from their stylistic handbrake turns" Matthew Wright, Jazzwise – February 2015
