About Alabaster Deplume

Alabaster DePlume is the performing identity of Angus "Gus" Fairbairn, a writer, saxophonist, orator, producer, and guitarist. Since 2012, he has been integrating jazz, global folk traditions, spoken word, and more as a bandleader. In 2013 he and composer/pianist Daniel Inzani issued the avant-cabaret offering The Jester. Two years later, DePlume released The Peach, a large ensemble work combining a song cycle, jazz improvisation, and folk. The experimental chamber-jazz-cum-singer/songwriter collection The Corner of a Sphere followed in 2018. In February 2020, he released his International Anthem debut, To Cy & Lee: Instrumentals, Vol. 1, as well as I Was Not Sleeping with Danalogue the Conqueror. In 2022, DePlume issued Gold, weaving together spoken word and spiritual jazz; he followed a year later with Come with Fierce Grace, a collection of leftover material from Gold, thoroughly reworked into an entirely new creation.
