“A musical mosaic of futurist ideas and indie-jazz harmonies” the Sam Newbould Quintet is an award winning international group based in Amsterdam.


Winner of the Keep an Eye Records 2019 and showcase artists at Injazz 2021, the band have been invited to perform at North Sea Jazz Festival, Love Supreme Festival (UK), BIMHUIS (NL), and Vortex (UK) amongst others. 

The band will present their third album Homing in June 2024. Homing is inspired by - and named after - Newbould's temporary adoption of a Polish homing pigeon, as well as his own reflections on building a life abroad. Combining humour with sadness, drama with banality, and virtuosity with simplicity, Homing is Newbould’s most personal and unapologetically bold musical statement yet. ‘Unlike the homing pigeon, my feeling of home isn’t tied to a particular place anymore, and the album is inspired by that process of building a new feeling of home.’

Celebrated for his uninhibited approach to writing both in his native UK and in The Netherlands where he lives, Newbould brings along a celebrated group of musicians, each bandleaders in their own right, to present eleven original compositions packed with musical storytelling, now further embellished with vocals and clarinet.
