Cygnus Flare are a London based trio with international roots. They formed in the summer of 2014 with a shared passion for jazz, latin, fusion and classical music. Pianist Arman Vardanyan grew up in Armenia, where he attended music school to study classical piano from the age of eight. He later discovered his love for jazz and was particularly influenced by the playing of Tigran Hamasyan, a pianist who fuses jazz with ethnic Armenian folk music. Since moving to the UK in 2001 he has been actively playing and teaching piano as well as composing within a wide range of genres. Bassist David Horler has been playing professionally since graduating from LCCM in 2013. He’s currently playing in numerous bands ranging from experimental pop, big band jazz and various function groups. (He has been taught by the likes of Jeff Clyne, Paul Morgan, Silas Maitland and Geoff Gascoyne.) He currently offers private tuition and has gigged all over London and a few other venues in Europe to boot. Drummer Caroline Scott is from Scotland, where she started playing drums. After moving to London in 2008, she has played and recorded in a wide range of musical environments, from theatre shows and jazz big bands, to orchestral percussion sections. She recently returned to London after two years in Boston where she played with college bands at Harvard, Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory and MIT, and gigged on the local circuit. Cygnus Flare have been busy composing their own unique flavour of progressive latin-jazz. They are looking to book gigs for early next year, please check out the promo video on Youtube: http://youtu.be/4U5KbZTFdXg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkK37c6VOrw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aZyZu8n0fo
