Open Fund: Jon Shenoy
Jon Shenoy's 'Draw By Four' - Second Studio Album
With a line-up steeped in tradition, Draw By Four take the classic 60s organ quartet into brand new territory where the compositions from leader Jon Shenoy (Ivo Neame Large Ensemble) mix contrapuntal bass lines and rhythmic hooks with thoughtful lyricism. Mixing stark ethereal voices with gritty Hammond boogaloo, organist Will Bartlett (Jim Mullen, Salena Jones) draws on a wide palette of sounds that build the foundation for an infectious mix of groove-based original compositions, enchanting ballads and unique arrangements of avant-pop songs.
A 24-date UK tour in 2017 was followed up with the critically acclaimed album release, ‘Framework’ which incorporated a suite of compositions written in response to paintings by British painters – a theme which continues in Draw By Four’s second studio album.
