I am so proud and excited to announce that I am one of the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Commission through one of my favorite venues, Roulette! What a pleasure to get a call from a true blue old school guy like Jim Staley, and what's more, the other grantees are some of the finest people around. My dear friend Dave Ruder is among the brains on the list! Congrats to everyone! I've been quietly putting together a band all summer and feel very pleased with the development of the group. I can't wait to share this music with you all.
Here's the full list of grantees:
Amirtha Kidambi, Ben Stapp, Aaron Burnett, David Ruder, Ha-Yang Kim, Leslie Flanigan, Tyshawn Sorey, Mary Kouyoumdjian and M.V.Carbon.
