Lifecycles – the debut album

Lifecycles marks the launch of the brand new Engines Orchestra, London’s freshest cross-genre ensemble here to collaborate with musicians to promote new music. Their first project sees banks of strings, brass and woodwinds team up with the critically acclaimed Phil Meadows Group. Throughout Lifecycles, the music remains highly melodic with elements of folk and classical lyricism sitting alongside lush jazz harmony. Violinist Alice Zawadzki also adds vocals during some of the suite’s climaxes, whilst jazz harpist Tori Handsley lends another flavour to the band’s distinct sound.
