HERD is a fresh jazz trio of vibraphone, double bass and drums. Hailing from Helsinki, Finland, the combo ranks among the most potent of the new breed of forward-thinking jazz ensembles. The band has already gained both domestic and international acclaim thanks to their successful debut album “HERD Live!!“, and their energetic stage presence. In July 2011, HERD was awarded the first prize at the prestigious “European Jazz Competition” at Holland’s North Sea Jazz Festival.
