Montreux Jazz Award nominees Brekky Boy are a powerhouse cinematic jazz rock trio hailing from Sydney. Drawing on artists such as Tigran Hamasyan, GoGo Penguin & Robert Glasper, the instrumental outfit has carved out an invigorating original sound that incorporates elements of jazz, rock, minimalist & soundtrack.
Brekky Boy has supported Blue Note Artist Ambrose Akinmusire and formed the official Montreux Jazz Festival House Band in 2019 where they played host to artists such as Shania Twain, Jacob Collier, Bon Iver, Janelle Monáe and more.
This year the project was selected to showcase at Jazzahead in Germany followed by a Europe tour including shows in Estonia, UK and Switzerland where they were invited back to host the renowned Montreux Jazz Festival Jam Sessions. Since returning to Australia they have performed at BIGSOUND and Melbourne Jazz Festival.
“With celebrity fans and a unique sound, this band doesn’t need labels.” – Nick Galvin, Sydney Morning Herald
