THE PLASTIC WASTE BAND
Ethan Cohn – bass, compositions // Chris Edmonson – alto sax // Claire Devlin – tenor sax // John Buck – drums
The Plastic Waste Band is a project inspired by humanity’s relationship with our own environment and our insistence on destroying that which sustains us. Comprised of accomplished musicians from all over the U.S. and Canada, the band released their debut album in August 2017 and have since donated all proceeds to various charities dedicated to environmental conservation. Their music explores the duality between the grounded and the ethereal, transitioning fluidly between their diverse influences of jazz, psychedelic rock, and beyond, while always maintaining at its core the spontaneity of improvised music. The Plastic Waste Band performs frequently in Montreal and will release a second album in the spring of 2019.
