Music Spoken Here presents Steve Taylor’s Fusion Phew
The Marrs Bar, 12 Pierpoint Street, Worcester WR1 1TA
Thursday 16th May, 8pm doors / 8:30pm start

In December 2022, rising star, singer/songwriter and guitar virtuoso Rosie Frater-Taylor appeared at The Marr’s Bar in Worcester in what was the fifth event of Music Spoken Here’s residency at the venue that is now entering its third year, showcasing the best from the contemporary UK improvised music scene.

Since then, Rosie, now 24, has released her second album ‘Featherweight’, which reached number 12 in the Independent Album Breakers chart. Rosie returns to The Marr’s Bar on Thursday 16th May, this time performing with both her parents in a relatively new band called ‘Fusion Phew!

The six-piece band was formed by Rosie’s dad, drummer, composer and producer Steve Taylor and premiered at EFG London Jazz Festival in 2021. It features Rosie’s mum, Josie Frater, on vocals, alongside Parliamentary Jazz 2014 Newcomer Award winner Phil Meadows on sax, piano maestro Neil Angilley on keys and Jonny Wickham, who appeared at The Marr’s Bar with Robert Castelli in March last year, on bass. These are all top players on the current London jazz and contemporary music scene.

The band will play jazz-funk and fusion classics from the likes of Al Jarreau and Gil Scott Heron, along with some of their own ‘sparkling’ originals.

To keep exceptional music accessible to all, Music Spoken Here operate ticketless events at The Marr’s Bar – just show up and pay what you can on the door. Alternatively, you can sign up for club membership and get free entry to all gigs plus other member benefits.
