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

Their sound mixes the melodic lyricism of jazz and folk with heavy danceable grooves and explosive improvisations.


Winner of the Keep an Eye Records 2019 and showcase artists at Injazz 2021, the group’s most recent album Bogus Notus was described as “compulsive listening” by Bebop Spoken Here (UK). Mixing lyrical jazz, folk and danceable grooves "the dark and often brooding atmospheres conjured by the album cast their own weighty spell"- All About Jazz (US)


The band have been invited to perform at BIMHUIS, Lantaren Venster, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, Vortex (UK), a Love Supreme Festival (UK) and Amsterdam JazzFest amongst others.
