OUT TODAY! I AM WARRIOR, the launch single featuring Zara McFarlane from the new Tomorrow’s Warriors album of the same title!!!
Full album release on 28 October, available as a digital download and limited-edition vinyl double album.
Recorded live at The Jazz Café, Camden – the spiritual home of Tomorrow’s Warriors – across three I AM WARRIOR gigs between 2019-2021, the album features recording of specially commissioned work by some of our award-winning alumni, including Zara McFarlane, Cherise Adams-Burnett, Camilla George, Cassie Kinoshi, Denys Baptiste, Nathaniel Facey, Sheila Maurice-Grey, Soweto Kinch, Mark Kavuma, Rosie Turton, Mark Crown, Shirley Tetteh, Ben Burrell, Binker Golding, Peter Edwards and Femi Koleoso.
The project saw established musicians composing for and performing with the next generation of young jazz talent, creating collaborations that cross over generations of musicians and capture the essence of the Warriors ethos ‘Each One, Teach One’.
I AM WARRIOR is The Sound of Tomorrow’s Warriors LIVE.
Not only is this a fantastic collection of music, capturing the ’lightning in the bottle moment’ of the live performances, but it is also a great way to support us. All the proceeds from the sale of this collectors’ item, limited-edition vinyl pressing will be reinvested back into the work of Tomorrow’s Warriors Trust (Charity No 1153613).
This October also sees the last gig in the I Am Warrior series, reuniting some of the alumni that composed and performed with our young musicians over the past three years on stage at Tomorrow’s Warriors spiritual home at The Jazz Café, Camden on 27 October!
These shows are our big music party every year – packed with incredible performances and intoxicating energy, so it’s no surprise that it is a regular sold-out show.
