Together Tania Davis (violin), Eos Counsell (violin), Elspeth Hanson (viola) and Gay-Yee Westerhoff (cello) complete the line-up of BOND.
BOND was hailed in the press as ‘the Spice Girls of Classical music’, and had turned the world of classical crossover music on its head, spawning many electric string groups inspired by its unique sound.
BOND draws its inspiration from classical, latin, folk, jazz, rock, pop, electro, Indian and middle eastern styles, has built a very active and loyal international fan base over the years and, since its debut, has sold over 4 million albums worldwide, making it the best-selling string quartet of all time.
The musicians, educated to the highest standard at some of the world’s most celebrated music institutions (Royal Academy of Music, Royal College of Music, Guildhall and Trinity College of Music), are pure entertainment, serving up a genuinely genre-defying act willing to explore the joy of music regardless of the cultural hamstrings.
In 2019 they are writing new material working with top producers such as David Arnold and Nitin Sawhney continuing their love from drawing influences from across the globe.
In recent collaborations BOND partnered up with Urban Voices, David Arnold, Melanie B to name a few in support of Care International UK and the single, ‘You Don’t Own Me’ was released with all proceeds going towards the charity. They performed again at March 4 Women taking place March 3rd 2019 at the Westminster Hall London.
