Info for Home

Home is the debut album by British pianist and composer, Eddie Gripper and his trio featuring Ursula Harrison on double bass and Isaac Zuckerman on drums. The recording came out of the lockdowns and was inspired by personal experiences, including the loss of Gripper’s beloved Grandmother.

“This record encapsulates a very important moment in my life - the exact moment where the line was crossed from wanting to write to needing to write,” explains Gripper. “The past few years of my life have been particularly turbulent. Amongst all the personal experiences that have inspired the creation of this record, the idea of enjoying what you have while you have it and cherishing that fondness is the most significant. As a band, we can certainly relate to this notion. At the time of recording the three of us were imminently due to go our separate ways for the indefinite future – with Ursula to Newfoundland and Isaac to Portland, USA.”

The seven original compositions feature metrically challenging grooves with rich, elegant harmonies, drawing from Gripper’s interest in different genres including jazz, folk and electronic music. “Each track is a journey through time and space – beginning and finishing at a familiar and comforting destination before moving onto new or subtly developed ideas,” says Gripper. “The trio breathes together as one homogeneous sound, with individual players taking to the spotlight to elaborate on their own interpretations of the music at hand.”
