‘Role Models’ is the debut album by Dominic Ingham, a violinist, singer and composer who combines violin techniques from his folk and classical background into playing a unique style of jazz violin. He has spent the last two years touring with Bonsai, one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed young bands on the UK scene, but is now embarking upon a personal journey with his own group and this album.

The album showcases his new quintet, featuring Jonny Mansfield (2018 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize winner) on vibraphone, Scottish pianist David Swan, Will Sach (NYC) on bass and Boz Martin-Jones on drums. “These musicians aren’t just my role models, they’re some my closest friends who I’ll continue to play with for the rest of my life”, says Dominic. These rising stars of the UK jazz scene join Dominic on an adventurous journey through seven of his original compositions, each of them inspired by new music from the likes of Ambrose Akinmusire, Walter Smith III and Camilla Meza, amongst others.

The album was produced by renowned UK drummer James Maddren (with whom Dominic studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama) and was engineered by fellow Yorkshireman and Grammy nominated engineer, Sonny Johns.
