Celebrate the energy of a new season with musician and producer Taylor McFerrin. Blurring the lines between old-school R&B, classic funk, soul, experimental electronic music, and progressive jazz, he writes and sings his own lyrics and vocals, on top of creating dazzling instrumental and production work. Known for breezy melodies and an adventurous sense of improvisation, he has collaborated with his father, the 10-time Grammy Award-winner Bobby McFerrin, Hiatus Kaiyote frontwoman Nai Palm, and bass / production wizard Thundercat, among others. With his 2014 debut Early Riser on the Brainfeeder label, Taylor still creates with its founder, Flying Lotus, trumpeter Chief Adjuah (formerly Christian Scott), Robert Glasper, and others in the jazz fusion supergroup R+R=Now.
Masayuki Hirano, better known as Big Yuki, is a groundbreaking songwriter and virtuoso keyboard player who blends jazz, soul, hip-hop and electronica. He is highly sought-after as a performer and collaborator by artists including A Tribe Called Quest, Kamasi Washington, and Lauryn Hill.
J. Hoard is a Brooklyn–based Grammy winning singer and songwriter known for Coloring Book and Chance the Rapper’s hit, “No Problem.” His collaborations include the critically acclaimed Meshell Ndegeocello album Ventriloquism.
