Daniel Casimir

Escape to Freight Island - The Ticket Hall

With awards from Jazz FM (Instrumentalist of the Year) and The Musicians’ Company (Young Jazz Musician Award, won with “a great mix of communicativeness, simplicity and sass”), bassist and composer Daniel Casimir has played a crucial role in the UK jazz scene.  

Since finishing the formal aspect of his musical training, Daniel has had the opportunity of performing with artists such as Julian Joseph, Jason Rebello, Lonnie Liston Smith, Chihiro Yamanaka, Jean Toussaint, and David Lyttle. He has also recorded with Nubya Garcia, Binker Golding, Camilla George, Blue Lab Beats, Oscar Jerome and Ashley Henry.   

In 2017 Daniel released his first recording as a bandleader Escapee, which was released under Jazz Re:freshed, followed by the critically acclaimed album These Days in 2019. His most recent release, Boxed In, is a dynamic collision of pulsating modern UK jazz, a mild sprinkling of drum’n’bass, and orchestral instrumentation. Its first single – Safe Pt1 – is inspired by Derek Owusu’s anthology reflecting on the Black British male experience.
