“It is their virtuosity, imagination and the inventiveness of Lloyd Swanton’s writing which makes this music so successful ... no written description can do justice to this music.” rolling Stone
Led by outstanding bass player Lloyd Swanton, The catholics is an enduring project with over 25 years at the forefront of Australian music. Their unique formula of tough jazz blowing over scintillating world beat grooves never fails to delight their fans.

“Superb soundscapes of melody and colour...”, Basler Zeitung, Switzerland

Based in France for over 20 years, Chris has played extensively in clubs and festivals around USA,
Europe and Africa. Equally at home in jazz or classical music, Chris likes to engage his audience in an intimate and original journey through diverse musical worlds, telling stories of space, magic and humour. Chris Cody recently released his latest album Not My Lover to great reviews, performing and touring around Australia and in Europe this year.
