Huw has recorded 2 albums for ECM (as Quercus with June Tabor and Iain Ballamy) and in 2018 released a solo piano recording Nocturnes and Visions. In 2019 he released 2 albums for CAM Jazz: Everything in Between (with Dudley Phillips and Zoot Warren) and New Day (with Mark Lockheart) His previous albums and projects have included themes and source material as diverse as John Dowland, Plainchant and Hermeto Pascoal.

His writing style combines quirky rhythmic grooves with simple melodic beauty; and manages to be both complex and approachable.

His best known projects include Dialektos (duo with  Italian singer Maria Pia de Vito), Hermeto+ (A reworking of the music of Hermeto Pascoal with drummer Martin France and bassist Peter Herbert), 100s of Things a Boy Can Make (with NY violinist Mark Feldman), Infinite Riches in a Little Room (a solo piano set centred around a beautiful reworking of a melody by John Dowland), Perfect Houseplants  (Huw Warren, Mark Lockheart, Dudley Phillips, Martin France),   A Barrel organ Far From Home (a nine piece mixed line up with strings and penny whistle) and a long standing collaboration with singer June Tabor. He has also performed and collaborated with  a wide array of musicians including Mark Feldman, Peter Herbert, Joanna Macgreggor, Iain Ballamy, Kenny Wheeler, Jim Black, Theo Bleckmann , Neil Yates, Pamela Thorby, Mose Se Fan Fan, Mat Maneri and Thomas Strønen .

Awarded the BBC Jazz award for Innovation, and the ACW Creative Wales Award, he has also written for many ensembles including Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Welsh Chamber Orchestra, RSC, LPO Renga ensemble, National Youth Brass Band of Wales, The Orlando Consort, Ensmble Plus, Koch Ensemble and Tango Siempre. Recently he has further broadened his collaborative pool to work with spoken word artists, visual artists, filmmakers, choreographers and photographers.

He will be joined by Max Wright on drums and Pete Komor on bass to play a range of Brazilian music fused with jazz, his own compositions and some exciting renditions of their favourite jazz classics.
