With a love of the groove and as much influenced by their parents record collections as modern music forms, The Outer Circle are Archie Tulk on alto sax, Judah Daniels on keys, Louis Hamilton-Foad on drums and Alexander Polack on trumpet. All four are from Birmingham and have played together in twos and threes in various bands and formats over the last few years before being bought together by Archie to explore writing their own music as well as reworking some of their favourite tunes.
