Beth McPherson

Born:

Berklee College of Music Class of 2021, dual major in Bass Performance and Jazz Composition I have been playing both electric and upright bass for 13 years and have experience playing all styles of music. My specialties include metal, jazz, funk, R&B/soul, progressive/fusion (rock, jazz, funk), Latin/Brazilian, and world music (Mediterranean, Arabic, Circus). I also have experience playing pop, rock, country, and extensive musical theater pit orchestra experience. One of my strengths is sight reading and the ability to create bass lines that are melodic while still maintaining the foundational role of the bass. I have experience touring (Mystical Hot Chocolate Endeavors, The Witching Hour tour, October 2019) and played in the backing band for Youtube-famous comedian Chris Fleming at his Boston stand-up comedy show in 2018 at the Wilbur Theater.

Bancroft And Lyne

New Bancroft & Lyne CD: MONDAY NIGHTS As a long-running husband & wife duo, Scottish-based Sophie Bancroft & Tom Lyne took full advantage of being ‘locked down’ together in Spring this year. They launched a weekly Monday night livestream session, direct from their living room, which not only garnered thousands of views, but also allowed them to rehearse and refine a catalogue of their favourite songs. The result is Monday Nights; a mix of reimagined classics and original compositions featuring British singer-songwriter Sophie on vocals and guitar alongside Canadian expat Tom Lyne on acoustic & electric bass.

Sadiki Pierre

Born:

Sadiki Pierre is a talented upright bass player who is uniquely capable of playing and fusing almost any style of music including classical, jazz, latin, reggae and R&B. When he first started playing the upright bass, he had no interest in actually learning the instrument and instead was only looking for a way to get out of his sixth grade class. Fortunately, he chose the right distraction from his schoolwork. It soon became apparent that he was quite musically adept. Although his parents could not initially afford to buy him his own instrument and pay for private lessons, he was still chosen to perform with the New York State School Music Association’s All-State Orchestra in addition to performing with another prestigious student orchestra throughout Europe. Despite the encouragement of those closest to him to study at a school like Juilliard or Berklee to become a full-time musician, Sadiki chose to attend an aviation school called Daniel Webster College in order to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a professional pilot

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
