Australian-born London-based pianist, composer and improviser Meg Morley creates music within various artistic genres (silent film, contemporary dance and ballet, solo piano, contemporary jazz ensembles and electronic music). Classically-trained, from the age of two, she has worked extensively with dance institutions (Australian Ballet, Royal Ballet, Rambert, Matthew Bourne, London Contemporary Ballet Theatre) and performs for international silent film festivals and institutions (Il Cinema Ritrovato, Le Giornate del Cinema Muto, Flatpack Festival, London Cinema Museum). 

 

In 2017 Morley released two debut recordings: the solo piano EP, Through the Hours, and the Meg Morley Trio album, Can't Get Started, with Richard Sadler on double bass and Emiliano Caroselli on drums. Both releases have received four-star reviews from various publications, including International Piano magazine and All About Jazz with the latter stating that "Sadler and Caroselli give her music an added depth, making this group one of the most exciting on the current UK scene" [Bruce Lindsay].
