“Young Vibrant Modern Jazz“
Woodhouse – The Music
Woodhouse is young, original, modern groove jazz composed by Christoffer Skovhus. The music invites the listener into a universe with Balkan inspired saxophone, odd time hip hop grooves, strong bass lines and dreaming keys that creates a unique and energetic sound. The band produces a fresh and vibrant sound on the modern jazz scene that leaves you with good vibes.
Woodhouse was in the spring of 2022 a part of the prestigious jazz competition “Jazzkonkurrencen”, arranged by Jazz Danmark, where they won the “audience award” for their great stage presence.

Christoffer’s love for funk and grooves has been instilled in him since he was a kid. It was artists like James Brown and Tower of Power that sparked his interest in grooves and funk music. Other artists such as Snarky Puppy, Ari Hoenig, Brian Blade and Bill Stewart went on to influence his composing and playing style. Christoffer has a bachelors degree in jazz from the Danish National Academy of Music and is now part of the modern jazz scene where he thrives in the free borders between genres.
