Earshift Music is proud to celebrate 15 years with a showcase presenting Melbourne’s most ground-breaking jazz stars.

This event features Cheryl Durongpisitkul leading the trio Koi Kingdom, as well as the album launch of drummer Maddison Carter's latest work, 'Polymorphic.'

Koi Kingdom, a Melbourne-based trio consisting of Cheryl Durongpisitkul on saxophone and vocals, Stephen Hornby on guitar, and Marcos Villalta on bass, creates a captivating blend of jazz influences, drawing from artists like Chick Corea, The Bad Plus, Esperanza Spalding, and Egberto Gismonti. Their second album, 'Pink Milk,' beautifully captures the group's raw energy and playful musical dialogue.

Cheryl Durongpisitkul has established herself as a prominent figure in the Australian jazz scene, known for her chamber ensemble compositions and distinctive playing style. Her music reflects her personal journey, addressing trauma and advocating for gender diversity within the jazz community.

Maddison Carter's 'Polymorphic' explores the intricacies of rhythm, pushing the boundaries between jazz and contemporary classical music. The compositions interweave tonal and atonal elements, creating a unique sonic landscape. The ensemble's sound is defined by electronic manipulation, precise rhythmic interplay, and the ethereal tones of the vibraphone.

Join us in celebrating 15 years of Earshift Music, a label founded in 2009 under the direction of Jeremy Rose. With over 80 albums released, Earshift Music continues to champion the diverse voices and cultural influences that shape Australian jazz.
