Joshua Bowlus

Born:

Growing up in Port Orange, FL as the oldest of three siblings, Joshua Bowlus started piano lessons at age five. He trained classically throughout his childhood with private lessons at Stetson University until he began high school. He credits both his high school band director Andrew Kidd and local pianist and teacher Harold Blanchard for sparking his interest in jazz, introducing him to the legendary sounds of masters such as Ahmad Jamal, Oscar Peterson, Thelonious Monk and more. Bowlus was awarded the Louis Armstrong award in high school and continued his music education at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, studying under pianists Kevin Bales & Keith Javors. The head of the UNF jazz department and legendary alto saxophonist Bunky Green served as Joshua’s primary mentor through his later years in college. Since graduating from college in 2006, he has built his musical career as a jazz pianist in the Southeast region, as both bandleader and sideman for various groups and artists.

Ben Adkins

Born:

Music has been a big part of my life since I was very young when I began playing in a family band. Fast forward 20 years and I’m still having a blast learning new things about music every day, and more recently writing original music. I’ve tried to always orient my playing around taste and humility, adding only the minimum necessary to move the music forward. My passion and reputation are centered on the art of subtlety. I completed my Bachelors in Jazz Performance at the University of North Florida under the tutelage of Danny Gottlieb in 2009, and my Masters in Jazz Studies at Florida State University under the tutelage of Leon Anderson in 2011
