Carlos Lopez-Real / Fini Bearman band


I got to know the gifted young singer-songwriter Fini Bearman while coaching at Guildhall, when she was still a student. I was blown away by her musicality and subsequently asked her to guest on several tracks of Mandorla's debut album.

We later put together a quartet together with Dave Manington (bass) and Josh Morrison (drums). It's a very open sound, having neither piano or guitar to state the harmonies. We play music that takes you on a journey through ambient soundscapes, irresistable grooves, great melodies and beautiful lyrics. Voice and sax blend together wonderfully and the whole band interact in a very fluid and exciting way, you never quite know what'll happen next!

Original material and even some Bach preludes!
