Reigate Winds was formed in 2010 by freelance musicians who all studied at Guildhall School of Music. They were originally a Wind Quintet, but today they are a flexible ensemble of wind players, performing wind chamber music for all combinations, from flute and bassoon duos to dectets, as well as collaborating with string ensembles and pianists. They aim to explore contemporary music, especially works by British composers such as Oliver Knussen, John McCabe, Thea Musgrave and James MacMillan, alongside the standard wind chamber repertoire.

Since forming, they have performed at venues across London and the South East, and were invited to open the International Spring Orchestra Festival at the Manoel Theatre in Malta, 2015. As freelance musicians, they have performed with orchestras such as London Philharmonic Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and RTE Symphony Orchestra. Also, Steven holds the position of Second Horn of the Irish Chamber Orchestra. They have also performed as soloists in the South East of England and Malta, and Gemma is a past winner of the Albert Cooper International Flute Competition.
