Leeds and are made up of a women/non-binary majority. Having met during their studies
in Leeds Conservatoire, they came together from a place of wanting to feel empowered in
a male dominated music industry and strive for inclusivity in their music and at their gigs.
Goddess Collective have featured heavily in the Leeds music scene ever since their debut at
Hyde Park Book Club a few years back in and have since played Belgrave Music Hall, headlined at the Hifi
Club and supported the London based Latin jazz powerhouse Colectiva (Jazz Re:Freshed Records) at Brudenell
Social Club. They ventured to Manchester’s well loved Old Abbey Taphouse, and in the
first year of their career as a band, they debuted at two major festivals - Tramlines (Sheffield) and Gilles Peterson's We Out Here Festival.
With an ever developing sound, they take inspiration from the likes of Fazer, Ezra Collective
and former Leeds mates TC & The Groove Family. At the end of January 2023, they released their debut single "Smash The Crash", a longtime popular track in their live sets. With two drummers, rhythm is always at the heart of their sound. Add that to their tight grooves and punchy horn lines and you'll soon be dancing to their music at the gig. Special guest artist for this show is longtime friend and tenor saxophonist Gustavo Andrade from Sao Paulo, already a well known musician in the Leeds jazz scene. A great gig just got even better.
They first formed at Leeds Conservatoire towards the end of 2022 and together, they make fiery tunes with spicy grooves and heavy beats. Taking notes from 90s jazz artists like Joshua Redman as well as contemporary British jazz like Waaju, their music is filled to the brim with hard-hitting lines over dynamic textures and powered electric energy. Get down early to catch another new breakout Leeds jazz band before the blow up big.
