Trumpeter, singer, and composer Keyon Harrold has played with Beyoncé, Common, Erykah Badu, Rihanna, Eminem, D’Angelo and the Vanguard, LL Cool J, and Maxwell, to name a few. On his 2017 album, The Mugician, (a play on musician & magician), the Ferguson, MO-raised, NYC-based Harrold returned to his own music, with the help of a few friends and past collaborators, including Gary Clark Jr, Bilal, & Robert Glasper, among others. The tunes range from laments and expressions of frustration to melodic pleas for understanding, justice and peace. Keyon Harrold and his band perform play these songs, in-studio.
