Graham Reynolds & The Golden Arm Trio
Amidst consistent scoring work, Reynolds has continued to perform live with his most personal works as a composer, bandleader, and improviser. With the jazz-based but far reaching Golden Arm Trio, Reynolds has toured the country and released four critically acclaimed albums. Beyond a consistent presence in Austin, the annual workshop series at Dive Bar, and seventeen straight years at SXSW, their tours took them to clubs and venues throughout the country, including The Kennedy Center, The Knitting Factory, Chicago Arts Center, and Spaceland.
As the sole constant member in its twenty year history, he serves as bandleader for this ever-evolving group. Utah Hamrick & Jeremy Bruch currently complete the trio, As told by The Austin Chronicle, “Although the trio designation would lead you to believe otherwise, this forever fluctuating collective is really more of an expansive outlet for vanguard pianist/percussionist Graham Reynolds to explore a variety of musical tangents… Jazz is the closest genre you can tie this music to, yet the Trio’s sometimes discordant intensity leans more toward experimental fringe-dwellers like John Cage and Raymond Scott.”
