Roz

Roz Harding is an "original and imaginative" (Mike Westbrook) alto saxophonist. The alto speaks volumes for Roz; she feels connected to it and audiences enjoy her ability to communicate - "a player who can tell a story that captivates and brings us back for more" (Gary Bayley). Described as "inspirational" and "immense" by Jazzwise Magazine, Roz has an expressive and "distinctive" (Smiths Academy Informer) style, citing her influences as Kate Bush, Bob Dylan, F. M. Alexander and his technique, Art Pepper, Jeff Buckley, Prince, The Beatles, Manic Street Preachers and Jackie McLean. Roz lives in Devon and likes to play new music. She can be found playing saxophone in Mike Westbrook’s 'The Uncommon Orchestra', Kate Westbrook's GRANITE band, Breath Of Great Life, A Quiet Night In, Billie Bottle's Temple of Shibboleth and leading her own project ///SUPERMOOD. In addition to her saxophone work Roz is currently a student at the Alexander Technique Training school South West, taking her improvisation to the next depth and digging into her ideas for teaching improvisation with Alexander Technique.
