Rhiannon and Laurence Hobgood join hands and voice in this project of improvisation and jazz standards. Contemporary virtuoso pianist, collaborator, composer, multiple Grammy nominee, and 2010 Grammy winner Laurence Hobgood has enjoyed a dynamic career.
Perhaps best known as musical director for singer Kurt Elling from 1995-2013, Hobgood co-produced ten of Elling’s CDs, each Grammy-nominated. Dedicated To You: Kurt Elling Sings The Music Of Coltrane and Hartman, recorded live at Lincoln Center, won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Vocal Jazz Record, with Hobgood receiving one of the coveted statues for his work as a producer.
Rhiannon & Laurence have appeared in New York City and Chicago, Hawaii and on the west coast, and are available for bookings in the United States, Europe and beyond.
“Perhaps the most impressive part of the evening was the connection and sense of play that Rhiannon and Hobgood displayed and embodied every second… The natural give and take between these two is palpable” – Nate Hall, PictureThisPost.com
A fabled underground figure in vocal jazz, Rhiannon turns improvisation into performance art… With a soft, supple voice and a range that climbs to the sky, she shows what heights jazz singing can reach when it combines disciplined musicianship with utter fearlessness.
