Daniel Padden & the One Ensemble
The first album as The One Ensemble of Daniel Padden was released by Catsup Plate in late 2002 while the second, The Owl of Fives was released by Textile in late 2003. All of the music on these 2 records was written, played and recorded by Daniel Padden with help from some friendly guests (as noted in the music section).
The One Ensemble has now grown to be a quartet who frequently perform live. The One Ensemble is made up of Chris Hladowski (bouzouki and clarinet), Peter Nicholson (cello), Daniel Padden and Aby Vulliamy (viola). This quartet, along with drummer/percussionist Alex Neilson, released 'Live At VPRO Radio' on Brainwashed's Handmade series. A new album 'Wayward the Fourth' was released in early 2007 on the Secret Eye label
