“Philly born and Charlotte raised, Braxton Bateman is the grandson of legendary jazz drummer Edward Bateman Jr. (Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea). Spending the early days of his youth in Philadelphia during the onset of the neo-soul movement, Bateman soaked in iconic acts at spots like the Clef Club of Jazz & Performing Arts, but initially found himself more drawn to the visual arts. After his family moved to Charlotte, Bateman found his way to the Northwest School of the Arts, and an accidental placement in band class changed his artistic direction. As Bateman puts it, “being in an environment where everyone was free to be themselves” was monumental in the formation of his style and artistic output.

Bateman fell in love with the trumpet at Northwest, and eventually participated in the JazzArts Charlotte program led by Lonnie and Ocie Davis. His work with JazzArts as a member of the student ensemble drove him to hone his craft, and he joined their All-Star group. More recent years have found Bateman playing alongside the B.B. King All-Stars, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Casey Benjamin, and local outfits like Menastree.” – Grant Golden, CLTure 

Aarik Duncan is a singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Raleigh, best known as a member of the R&B/soul band NiiTO.
