We kick off Season 2 with the powerful and profound voice of Jon Batiste. The conversation that took place in the studio above the Ed Sullivan Theatre on Broadway is one that we trust will set the precedent for the incredible guest line-up ahead.
Born into a long lineage of Louisiana musicians, Jon Batiste is a globally celebrated musician, educator, bandleader and television personality whose musical skill, and artistic vision has captivated the hearts of many, whether solo or with his band Stay Human. Jon is a musical genius who is well-known for his role as the Musical Director of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Jon recorded and released his first solo album, Hollywood Africans this past year and received critical acclaim from his peers and press — including his first GRAMMY nomination. Strongly committed to the arts, philanthropy, education and mentoring of young musicians, Jon is currently the Artistic Director At Large of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and Musical Director for The Atlantic.
Our deep hope is that this episode would be your invitation toward stepping into your lineage, speaking your truth, honoring how you spend your time, and challenged by radical love.
