"Lavery expertly plays jazzy, psychedelic soul that you hear as if through a fine Irish mist."
John Shand, The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia


Lavery emerges from the vibrant music scene of Dublin as an electrifying 8-piece collective poised to captivate audiences worldwide with their debut EP, "JADE GARDEN." Formed in 2023, this powerhouse ensemble brings together seasoned musicians from various corners of the globe, each contributing a unique flavour to their mesmerizing cocktail of Jazz Fusion and Neo-Soul. With roots in acclaimed music performance colleges such as BIMM and DCU's Jazz Program (Newpark), Lavery's sonic tapestry reflects a rich blend of cultural diversity and technical excellence.

Their rise has been nothing short of meteoric, gracing prestigious Irish venues like The National Gallery of Ireland and Lost Lane, and a Culture Night event in The Sugar Club. Now, hungry to make their mark on the European scene, Lavery gears up for their first international performances at multiple UK venues and festivals in June of this year. They opened for Grammy award-winning artist Sly5thAve in Belfast in April of 2024.

Fronted by the captivating Anelise Furkin, Lavery's live performances are more than just music; they're immersive experiences that transcend traditional boundaries. Lavery's sound defies categorisation, promising a musical landscape that's as unpredictable as it is enthralling. Their single, "The Mist," has already enjoyed significant success on the US JazzWeek charts, while critics worldwide acclaim Lavery's ability to expertly blend psychedelia, soul and jazz. With the release of "JADE GARDEN" on 25/05/2024, Lavery stands ready to leave an indelible mark on the burgeoning Irish jazz scene.


"The incredibly lush tune 'What I Want ... starts off with groovy, mesmeric instrumentation that seamlessly smooths into a jazzy guitar solo that causes a stir before closing"
Caroline Kelly, Hot Press Magazine, Ireland
