“Law is a gamechanger.” The Guardian
As the UK begins to wake from a pandemic induced slumber, Ant debuts his latest album, ‘The Sleeper Wakes’ on Edition Records in July 2020 at Ronnie’s. It features Ant’s long time collaborators, alto saxophonist, MIKE CHILLINGWORTH and pianist IVO NEAME. The quintet will perform music from this this release as well as favourites from their previous three albums.
In 2013 his debut 'Entanglement' (33Jazz) was released, followed by 'Zero Sum World' (Whirlwind Recordings) in 2015 and then 'Life I Know' (Edition Records) in 2018. This release was described as “career-defining”. It achieved 5-star reviews, made numerous “best of 2018" lists, received airplay in the UK, Europe, Australia, and was added to numerous editorial playlists on streaming services.
Ant also plays in Tim Garland's band with Jason Rebello & Asaf Sirkis, featuring on albums 'Songs To The North Sky', 'Return To The Fire' & 'ONE' which was shortlisted for a Grammy and won the Jazzwise Best Album award.
Furthermore, Ant is the “L” in Trio HLK who record/tour with Dame Evelyn Glennie. He has worked with other notables Cory Henry, Thomas Gould and is featured in “Total Guitar", “Guitar Techniques" & “Guitarist” magazines. In the latter he was included in a list of “10 Astounding Virtuosos”, and the May 2021 issue of Guitar Techniques features a 2-page spread on Ant, and a 9/10 review of The Sleeper Wakes.
