Formed and fronted by Cambridge based vocalist Ollie Lepage-Dean, Mode9 features some of the regions most talented young jazz musicians, playing music with a refreshing fusion of neo-soul and jazz with just a hint of funk.
Playing almost exclusively original compositions and arrangements written by Ollie himself and James Brady, Mode9 mixes smooth melodies and unique harmonies with a fiery horn section.
Influences include Erykah Badu, Steely Dan and Jamie Cullum, and as well as hearing some of the best original writing around, audiences can also be treated to some popular favorites heard in astonishingly fresh and exciting arrangements including the musical number Raindrop’s Keep Falling on my Head and Stevie Wonder’s Superstition.
Performing regularly in Cambridge for a variety of jazz nights and more recently at at both the Cheltenham Jazz Festival 2017 and the Cambridge Jazz Festival 2016, they released their EP ‘On Standby’ in October 2016.
