artist info

Keyon Harrold first came into the International spotlight for his work as the trumpet voice behind the Grammy winning Don Cheadle film “Miles Ahead”, and his critically acclaimed album, The Mugician, (Sony Legacy / Mass Appeal). As a bandleader, he has created a compelling new statement with a riveting mix of jazz, Afrobeat, soul, spoken word, hip-hop, blues, rock and even American folk. As a soloist, his distinctly warm trumpet sound simmers in the middle register; creating drama without aggrandizing, and mesmerizing live audiences with an emotionally charged concert presentation.

In addition to being one of the new leading voices in Jazz Music, Keyon Harrold has collaborated with many of the top hip hop and pop artists including: Common, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Eminem, Maxwell, and Anthony Hamilton, and rock legends Keith Richards and Jeff Beck. These experiences broadened his musical horizons beyond jazz to include funk, Afrobeat, R&B, rock and roll, and hip hop.

“Keyon Harrold Is Equal Parts Music” - Billboard

Musically, Harrold lives by the notion that the only thing that identifies a genre is its beat. That belief has allowed Harrold to tear down the walls of the genre to roam music freely. There are only 12 notes, so he pours his soul into every musical situation, be it performing live and leading his band, recording, composing for television and film, mentoring youth, and teaching music.

“Keyon Harrold carries a natural swagger that is not misplaced: he’s a compelling communicator and commanding trumpeter.” The magic of his performance is the accomplishment of a quintet that resonates as both accomplished and raw, the seeking of new challenges...” -Love Supreme Festival.

Keyon’s career is a spectrum of greatness in terms of collaboration and as a solo artist. He is a once-in-a-generation type talent on trumpet. His approach and sound are personal as well as engaging; a sort of magical haze often referred to as modern-day Mile’s Davis.

Keyon is a first-call trumpeter, arranger, composer, and music producer, with feature credits on many Grammy Award Winning and Nominated Albums.

Keyon has worked in the studio with Keith Richards, Dianna Ross, Black Pumas, Mac Miller (Stay), Big K.R.I.T., and the God MC Nas (The Jarreau of Rap) Leon Bridges (Gold Diggers Sound), and UK crooner Samm Henshaw (Still Broke). Keyon is a frequent collaborator with YEBBA (Distance), Robert Glasper (Black Radio lll, The Photograph, Miles Ahead), Maxwell (Black Summers Night), Common (Beautiful Revolution pt. 1&2), PJ Morton (Emotions, Gumbo, Gumbo Live), and Gregory Porter (Be Good, Take Me To The Alley).

Harrold is the Artistic Advisor for Jazz St.Louis.

He is an activist for social justice, change, and equality.

Keyon has two critically acclaimed albums Introducing Keyon Harrold (Criss Cross) and The Mugician (Sony Legacy).

Keyon has signed to Concord Records and his new release is coming early 2023.
