Distance has done little to hamper the creative output of Weijters and McCullough. Though separated by nearly 5,000 Km, they have produced three international releases with their quartet (Imaginary Sketches, Urban Nightingale, and Abstract Quantities - all on the Origin Record Label) and now bring to light a uniquely intimate project, a contrasting piece, that showcases both musician’s subtleties.

Feather is a 10-track album of original music written by Bram Weijters. Based in Antwerp, Belgium, Weijters is quickly making a name for himself on the international scene as a composer and pianist, and further drives home the point here. His vintage keyboards, synth sounds, and electronic processing provide depth to the unique trumpet-keys duo, and his unwavering sense of time and harmony is the foundation that this music stands so firmly on. Functioning for all intents and purposes as a score to a black and white art-film not yet made, Feather is light, and often extremely delicate - yet somehow this music holds immense depth and dark beauty.

“Weijters is a commanding presence on the piano—passionate and percussive on the set's opener, "Billions." McCullough's trumpet displays the purest of tones on this propulsive piece, with Verbist and Bishop crafting an unsettled and turbulent rhythm. Weijters' solo reveals a knack for intriguing story telling, a talent he shares with McCullough...” - Dan McClenaghan / All About Jazz
