Keyboard player and pianist Charlie Stacey fuses jazz-piano virtuosity with dark synth textures and grooves. One of the UK’s leading keys players, Stacey's improvisational skills are unmatched. Known for his work with Yussef Dayes and fellow Tomorrow Warriors alumni such as Moses Boyd and Ezra Collective his technical prowess and ability to jump between genres has quietly gained the young pianist a reputation as one of the most advanced players around.
Charlie released his second album 'The Light Beyond Time' in December 2022 with an all star band. Demonstrating his abilities as an agile and highly adaptive performer & composer, Stacey allowed the new line-up to shape the sound in unexpected ways. What began as a Herbie Hancock-era Headhunters instrumental tip erred instead towards old school jazz scat in places, ethereal RnB and Kamasi Washington-esque lyrical space-ballads in others.
