About the Artists: Kris Bowers

True musicianship knows no boundaries, and at his core, pianist and film composer Kris Bowers is a true musician. Schooled in jazz and classical music, raised amid old-school R&B and funk at home and the music of the 1990s with his peers, and inspired by the great film composers of recent decades, Bowers’ sound—though rooted in traditional styles—is open to numerous influences that keep the music fresh and vibrant for a new century. This rich and eclectic sensibility is evident from the very first notes of Heroes + Misfits, his debut recording on Concord Jazz. Released in March 2014, Heroes + Misfits opened at No. 1 on the iTunes jazz charts and to critical acclaim.
