‘iii’ was formed in 2017 and is inspired by Contemporary, forward-thinking Jazz artists, including BADBADNOTGOOD, Bobby Hutcherson, Herbie Hancock. Continuing into this year, the trio’s individual sound has developed and broadened through their original compositions and their aspirations in producing/recording original music. The trio consists of Vibraphone (Brendan Foster), Electric Bass (Julia Beiers) and Drums (Ryan Hammermeister) which blends hard, energetic grooves with rich chords and round, echoing melodies/solos similar to Bobby Hutcherson’s post-bop style. Each member of this trio offers their own individual styles and backgrounds which are moulded together when they play as a group. This individualism and connectivity present in the group’s playing are symbolised by the conceptual trio name “iii”.
Ryan Hammermeister is a Brisbane Drummer influenced by Jazz innovators Tony Williams, Joe Chambers, Mark Giuliana and Karriem Riggins. At age 10, Ryan was driven towards percussion/drum-kit and pursued private tutoring with his local inspirations Steve Pope, Joe Marchisella, Lachlan Hawkins and currently Paul Hudson. In his Second-year as a jazz student at the Conservatorium, Ryan is constantly in a state of musical development, technically and artistically. He aims to express flow in his artistic ideas on the drums, by channelling his musical likings from early childhood to present.
Brendan Foster is a Brisbane based musician, specialising in vibraphone. His style is influenced by musicians such as Dexter Gordon, Oscar Peterson, Bobby Hutcherson and Herbie Hancock. For the majority of his life, Brendan has been interested in both playing and studying music, focussing primarily on jazz. Currently a second-year student at the Queensland Conservatorium, Brendan aspires to compose and perform his own music.
Julia Beiers is a Brisbane musician currently studying Jazz Bass at the Queensland Conservatorium. Her style is heavily influenced by Funk, Soul and Motown musicians such as James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius and Bernard Edwards. Julia aspires to create a new, innovative sound for Jazz by incorporating her Funk/Soul/Motown background into her playing and her own music. She also hopes that this approach will create a new direction in Jazz and further encourage accessibility in such a complex genre.
