Bill Laurance (of Snarky Puppy) @ The Pour House (Raleigh, NC)
Opener: Eric Hirsh (of The Beast)
Bill Laurance: Grammy Award® winner and original member of the internationally acclaimed Snarky Puppy, Bill Laurance released his debut album Flint in 2014, and after going straight to No. 1 in the iTunes Jazz Charts, received international critical acclaim. His second album Swift was released on GroundUP Music in Spring 2015.
Classically trained, Bill has worked as a professional musician since he was 14, touring internationally as a pianist, keyboard player, composer, producer and arranger, recording and or performing with artists including: David Crosby, Morcheeba, Salif Keita, Bobby McFerrin, Susana Baca, Lalah Hathaway, Laura Mvula, Jacob Collier, Musiq Soul Child, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke, Carlos Malta, Miss Dynamite and The Metropole Orchestra.
Eric Hirsh Quartet: Pianist and composer Eric Hirsh can play pretty much anything you throw at him. When he’s not leading his jazz quartet (Aaron Hill on saxophone, Peter Kimosh on bass, and Stephen Coffman on drums), he’s helping drive the progressive hip-hop of The Beast or the salsa shake of Orquesta GarDel. His original compositions have a propulsive thrust that combines a minimalist drive with the complex, expressive melodies. He’s one of the area’s best.”
