Fay Victor - voice
Anders Nilsson - electric guitar

The Fay Victor Ensemble is a voice-guitar-bass-drum unit performing original material that mostly provides structure for free improvisational flight; each member contributing equally to proceedings. The band's first recording, Cartwheels Through the Cosmos, was released in January 2007 on the ArtistShare label. It is an ambitious and adventurous project that oversteps and redefines the boundaries of what a jazz-singer is. It combines the thoughtfulness of observant lyric-writing, the excitement of improvising, and the structure of solid composing, captivating the listener with cinematic, story-driven pieces.

“It's a borderless, cacophonous, in-your-face experiment of tone poetry and free-form expression. It's tough. It's gutsy. It's brilliant." -Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes
