Keyon Harrold

Keyon Harrold image

Hailed as “the future of the trumpet” by Wynton Marsalis, Keyon Harrold is one of the world’s most sought-after young trumpeters. He won a Grammy for his playing in Don Cheadle’s Miles Davis biopic “Miles Ahead” and has toured with the likes of Jay-Z, Beyonce, Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill.

His emotionally-charged debut album, inspired by the police shooting in his home town of Ferguson, Missouri, is ‘a sonic blend of past, present and future’ (Downbeat) and features his crack young band in music that can be sweeping and cinematic, dense with contemporary beats, and true to the jazz tradition: a new Miles?
