QOW TRIO is a unique multi-generational band featuring young firebrand saxophonist Riley Stone Lonergan, British Jazz legend Spike Wells (Tubby Hayes, Bobby Wellins) on drums, and multi-genre bassist and bandleader Eddie Myer

The trio initially got together through their mutual love of Sonny Rollins' classic piano-less trios of the 1950s but soon found themselves expanding their repertoire to explore the rich and varied territory laid out by the great tradition of big-toned tenor players over the generations. 

Their first album was released on Ubuntu Music to excellent reviews in national press and has been played on JazzFm and BBC Radio 3, and extensively playlisted on Spotify. 

Sales have been brisk and feedback from a wide range of audiences has been very positive.  

Engagements since 2020 included PIzza Express Jazz Club, The Vortex, The 606 Club, Love Supreme Festival, Rye Jazz Festival, The Brighton Jazz Festival, Jazz In The Round and a tour of Ireland.

The trio's most recent album ‘The Hold Up’ was released in January 2024 on Ubuntu Music.
The group has an extensive UK tour booked and the plan is to take the music into Europe and beyond.
