Graham Costello's STRATA - Image #2.jpg


Hypnotising and powerful minimal music. Scottish drummer and composer Graham Costello creates

minimalist music that ranges from ambient and post-rock, to jazz improvisation and groove. Primarily

with his band STRATA, he has been nominated for Scottish Album of the Year, as well as eight Scottish

Jazz Awards. STRATA’s energetic and organic improvisation, alongside the hypnotising patterns and feel

of minimalism has been described as “a meteorite on the scene and beyond.” (The National)

Costello and his peers are among the prominent new Scottish jazz artists bursting into the UK jazz

scene, including corto.alto and Fergus McCreadie. After his widely-praised debut album OBELISK in

2019, Costello signed to Gearbox Records (Binker and Moses, Abduallah Ibrahim, Theon Cross). In May

2021, he released his follow-up album with STRATA: Second Lives, to critical acclaim, with top UK jazz

publication Jazzwise naming it one of the “Best Jazz Albums of 2021”.
