EZRA COLLECTIVE – one of the UK’s most exciting groups – are back with new single, More Than A Hustler featuring Novelist
This uplifting jazz-meets-grime roller is Ezra Collective’s first new music in over a year and finds them uniting with top MC, Novelist.
“The marriage of grime and jazz started for us when we’d play covers of JME instrumentals”, explains bandleader Femi Koleoso. “That journey continued with Quest For Coin II, and this latest instalment features an MC who, like us, has a deep love for pushing the boundaries of music. More Than A Hustler is the tale of how we are consistently on the quest for greatness, and how we are more than just that journey – way more.”
Since Ezra Collective’s last release (Quest for Coin II featuring JME and Swindle) back in November 2020, the various band-members have been keeping busy. Drummer and bandleader Femi Koleoso is now an integral part of the Gorillaz line up, bassist TJ Koleoso has played alongside Yazmin Lacey, keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones contributed to Mick Jenkin’s new album, toured with Nubya Garcia and released solo material, saxophonist James Mollison has been performing in Nala Sinephro’s band, whilst trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi has been playing stadiums with Burna Boy. Together, Ezra Collective headlined We Out Here festival in summer 2021 and have been back in the studio recording new material, more of which will be released during 2022…
