Dave Bristow is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and teacher based in Birmingham. He specializes in jazz piano and composition after studying both disciplines intensively up to postgraduate level. He achieved a BMus (Honours) in Classical Music from Manchester University in 2011, studying piano with Les Chisnall and composition with Richard Whalley, Philip Grange and Camden Reeves. He then went on to complete an MMus Performance degree (Jazz Piano) in 2012 at Leeds College of Music receiving tuition from Jamil Sheriff. Dave has been under the tutelage of Kit Downes and Gwilym Simcock. As well as being active as a jazz pianist, performing particularly in Birmingham, Manchester, London and Leeds, Dave is currently writing and recording jazz compositions for his trio, 'Dave Bristow Trio'. Dave is also a keen guitarist, violinist, songwriter and arranger. He has recently come off a three month stint with 'The Craze Band' aboard the P&O Adonia in Cuba, Miami and the Dominican Republic playing everything from solo jazz piano performances of Great American Songbook standards with advanced harmonic modulations to electronic keyboard parts in various styles (funk, pop, rock, soul, motown, disco and reggae). His first solo piano record is available to listen to on Bandcamp: https://davebristow.bandcamp.com/releases
