Turning Plates

Turning Plates is a unique group of musicians based in Glasgow who came together with a determination to introduce fresh textures and create new soundscapes within contemporary music.


Their distinct and individual sound is a culmination of each member's diverse musical background, ranging from classically trained orchestral professionals through to alternative rock and jazz players. These influences are felt throughout the music - instruments such as cello, clarinet and trombone fuse with guitar, drums and synthesizers to create songs that have been described as “Beautifully chaotic at some parts and then soulfully delicate at others” (isthismusic.com).
