Toronto based Pram Trio was formed in 2009 by Mark Godfrey bass and Jack Bodkin piano. They released their debut album Visitor Parking in the fall of 2013 which garnered rave reviews with particular emphasis on their writing style and was awarded the 2014 Grand Prix de Jazz from the Festival International de Jazz de Montreal. Eric West drums first performed with the band on their CD release tour that year and officially joined the group before their 2014 Canadian Jazz Festival tour.

Influenced by a wide range of traditional and current jazz artists as well as many other styles, Pram Trio’s music is “very contemporary, composed and multi-­sectional” (Peter Hum/Ottawa Citizen Jazz Blog). Pram Trio puts a strong focus on collective improvisation and creates an experience that appeals to listeners both familiar and unfamiliar with jazz.

In March 2016, Pram Trio will be celebrating the release of their new EP with a Canada-wide tour. This will be the first EP that includes the current lineup of the band. Having enjoyed three Canadian tours since 2011, the musicians in Pram Trio perform regularly outside the group and as individuals have each established strong musical identities with the Canadian music scene. The group has been featured at jazz festivals across Canada including Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Rimouski and Prince Edward County and they are very excited to take their music on the road once again.
