Metamorphic are an octet of some of the finest improvising musicians in the UK, who play compositions written by Pianist / Bandleader Laura Cole, based on her emotional journeys and personal experiences. This is an octet who really relish playing together, and who seek to explore the intensity of collective experience, with Cole’s compositions as a starting point, through spoken word, improvisation and tightly written passages. Their most recent third album, 'The Two Fridas' was released on Discus in April 2018 to critical acclaim.


"Tough, dramatic, riveting, such quick-witted playing and very canny writing" - Robert Wyatt


"In the current overall musical climate it’s good to hear artists making heartfelt personal statements and taking musical and creative risks" - The Jazz Mann
