THE CONSOULS //
The Consouls are a Sydney based ensemble that combine their two loves of jazz and video games to create a unique sound for gamers and jazz fans alike. By drawing from their love of the jazz tradition and applying it to a songbook that doesn’t often cross into the genre, their unique sound is sure to provide a treat unlike any other. Their background in jazz mixed with soul and r’n’b sensibilities create a variety of different styles that are sure to satisfy, whether you’re after Miles Davis or Mario.
Best known for their arrangements on YouTube, the group has also composed a number of original compositions for video games and short films. In 2015, in addition to releasing their debut EP, the group was featured as part of TEDxMacquarieUniversity as well as a number of conferences and conventions in both the jazz and video game space.
Julian Sanchez – Piano
Jonathan Gamra – Double Bass
Mark Joya – Drums

Jonathan Lim – Guitar
Message from The Consouls:
As we approach the end of the year, it brings me great pleasure to announce that the end of the Super Monday Jam album recording in sight and we’re ready to announce some shows we’ll be playing to celebrate this milestone release for the channel. We’ll be playing shows in both Sydney and Melbourne, where you’ll be able to grab the first copies of the album before they go live for everybody else.
It wouldn’t quite be a Consouls tour if we missed a chance to play at Play Bar Sydney. When we return from down south, we’ll be partying at our favourite Sydney venue, featuring tunes new and old as well as a live stream for the folks at home!
We’ll have details on when the digital release will be available, but rest assured we’ll be aiming to get it lined up with the tour as best as we can. We’re so excited to be able to show you the fruits of many months of labour and hope we can see many of you at the shows!
