Kris Bowers, who grew up here in Wellington Square, will be performing this weekend on Sunday, March 16th at 5pm at Amoeba Music in Hollywood in a concert sponsored by KKJZ 88.1 – in conjunction with the release of his debut album on the Concord label last week. The album is called “Heroes + Misfits”. (You can check it out on iTunes – it’s a fantastic album!)
Kris has been spending his time recently on tour and in New York City – after attending Julliard for his undergraduate and masters degrees, winning the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Piano Competition at the Kennedy Center, and collaborating on a recording with Kanye West. Kris is currently touring with a quintet from his new album. His parents, Eric & Kim, still live over on Victoria Ave. – and are incredibly proud is his achievements.
