Keyon Harrold

Aug 14, Sunday - 8pm
SJZ Break Room Stage

Hailed as “the future of the trumpet” by none other than Wynton Marsalis, Keyon Harrold is an inventive, multidisciplinary, genre-fluid artist, bandleader, composer, arranger, and platinum music producer whose creative touch has extended into partnerships of varying format and tradition.

From touring and recording with Jay Z and Cirque Du Coleil to being signed by legendary rapper Nas to his Mass Appeal and writing the theme song for The Queen Latifah Show, his career is a spectrum of greatness.

He’s recorded feature credits with Keith Richards, Black Pumas, Mac Miller (“Stay”), Nas (“Jarreau of Rap”) and most recently UK crooner Samm Henshaw (“Still Broke”). He’s a frequent collaborator with YEBBA, Robert Glasper, Maxwell, Common, PJ Morton, and Gregory Porter. Harrold is the new Artistic Advisor for Jazz St. Louis.

Musically, Harrold lives by the notion that the only thing that identifies a genre is its beat. That belief has allowed harrold to tear down the walls of genre to roam music freely. There are only 12 notes, so he pours his soul into every musical situation, be it performing live, recording, or composing for television and film.
