Led Bib - Improvisation Experimental Jazz Rock Live Act in London

Led Bib Short Info

Led Bib was formed in 2003 by drummer/composer Mark Holub and played its first gig on February 24th, 2004. The group released their first album in May 2005 to widespread critical praise and went on to win the 2005 Peter Whittingham Jazz Award. Their second album Sizewell Tea was released in 2007 through iconic London based record label Babel. It was quickly followed by a limited edition live release, but it was the release of their 4th album Sensible Shoes that saw them experience widespread acclaim following the announcement that they were chosen as an Album of the Year in the Barclaycard Mercury Prize. The ensuing media storm saw them reach in excess of 20 million people as they performed on TV & Radio sessions including Channel 4 TV News with Jon Snow and playing live on BBC 2.

In 2011 they released Bring Your Own, their second album for US based Cuneiform Records, which was quickly hailed as a stand out success, getting 4 and 5 star reviews across the board. 2014 saw the release of two new albums to celebrate their 10th anniversary, the studio album 'The People in Your Neighbourhood' and the limited edition live vinyl 'The Good Egg' and both were hailed as modern classics and their best yet. And the future will see more of the same with Led Bib heading into the studio in early 2016 for a release in early 2017, their 8th release.

Led Bib continue to appeal to all fans of good music – it’s the reason that drum and bass heads, jazz aficionados and folk and pop fans are dotted across their audiences. They have drawn references from across the musical spectrum from Captain Beefheart and John Zorn to Pink Floyd and Miles Davis.
