Ben Williams DUO

feat. Sydnee Winters

Grammy-winning bassist, composer and bandleader BEN WILLIAMS is perhaps best known for his work in the jazz world as the longtime bassist of Pat Metheny’s Unity Band. Over the last fifteen years, Williams has performed with Wynton Marsalis, George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Robert Glasper and David Sanborn, among many others.

 

SYDNEE WINTERS often crosses pop, reggae, R&B, jazz and hip-hop genres in her music. Winters is much more than just a multi-faceted vocalist, however, with Broadway theater credits that include Hamilton, The Lion King, Pippin, Jesus Christ Superstar and Motown The Musical.

 

Join us this Thursday at 7pm PST / 10pm EST to hear this incredibly talented duo!
