More details ↓

Bear & Missile is an Adelaide-based ensemble comprised of young talents,

Bernard Alexander (saxophones), Benjamin Finnis (guitar), Dylan Kuerschner

(bass), and Morgan Fletcher (drums). Having collaborated in various groups

in Adelaide for several years, these four artists developed a simpatico musical

and personal relationship that resulted in this co-led ensemble. With each

member regularly contributing original compositions, Bear & Missile’s music

stems from a diverse range of musical influences and genres, from Herbie

Hancock to Henry Threadgill, and Bebop to RnB. The group’s compositions

explore elements of the jazz canon that feel particularly relevant to them as

young people, such as soulful melodies, dancing rhythms, and high-energy

vehicles for improvisation.
