On this week's Geektown Radio we not only have all the usual TV & Film news but also an interview with Emmy-winning composer, recording artist, and general musical genius, Kris Bowers!
Kris has been described as "one of the freshest voices in jazz", and started learning piano almost as soon as he could reach the keys! He attended to famed music school Juilliard gaining undergraduate and Master's degrees, making a name for himself as an incredible jazz musician in NYC, which led to him appearing on Jay-Z and Kanye West's collaborative album, 'Watch the Throne'.
On top of his performing work, Kris is also a hugely talented composer. He has gained acclaim for his work on numerous documentaries, and won an Emmy for the soundtrack to animated feature 'The Snowy Day'. His latest project saw him compose the original score for Netflix’s brilliant ‘Dear White People’, a satirical comedy/drama which follows the experiences of Black students the fictional Ivy League ‘Winchester University’.
