Byron Wallen

A warm and engaging performer, Byron is ‘one of the most innovative, exciting and original trumpet players alive’ (Jazzwise Magazine). Widely recognised as a seminal figure in world jazz, he is constantly travelling the world recording, teaching and performing.

A creative force in the UK since the early 90’s, Byron’s early career included work with the likes of Courtney Pine, Jean Toussaint and Cleveland Watkiss. As his career progressed, he expanded his versatile performances to include the likes of The Style Council, various rap artists and the seminal “hip-hop” groove bands US3 and Incognito.
