Byron Wallen is ‘one of the most innovative, exciting and original trumpet players alive’ – Jazzwise Magazine.
“Four corners” is a musical journey on which Byron explores issues of ancestry, diasporic journey and cultural roots. His music draws inspiration from contemporary and indigenous cultures.
Byron Wallen (b. 1969) was raised in a musical family and as a child studied classical piano, euphonium, trumpet, flute and drums. The trumpet becoming his first-choice instrument, he studied with Peter Ruderforth in London and with Jimmy Owens, Donald Byrd and Jon Faddis in New York in the mid to late 80s. In 1992, Wallen graduated from Sussex University with a degree in psychology, philosophy and mathematics.
