In addition to the SIMPLE trio, Webber’s other projects include her septet Percussive Mechanics and the collaborative band Jagged Spheres with Devin Gray and Elias Stemeseder. In 2014 she won the BMI Foundation Charlie Parker Composition Prize as a member of the BMI Jazz Composers’ Workshop, and she is the winner of the 2010 Prix François-Marcaurelle at the OFF Festival of Jazz in Montreal.
