The latest video in Small Pond’s series of Down Time sessions has been released, featuring Poppy Ackroyd. The Brighton-based pianist and composer, who also performs with Hidden Orchestra, performs her track ‘Trains’ in an artist’s loft in London Bridge, surrounded by artworks and with the London skyline beyond.
This latest instalment in the Down Time series follows on from sessions with the likes of rising indie stars Boy Pablo, and Japanese jazzers Mouse On The Keys, among others.
Classically trained on violin and piano from an early age, Ackroyd studied piano and composition at Edinburgh University before completing a masters degree in Piano Performance. Her last album, Resolve, was released earlier this year on One Little Indian.
The ‘Trains’ video is now available to view on the Small Pond YouTube channel:
