Casey Benjamin is a Two time GRAMMY® award-winning musician who grew up listening to music in his South Jamaica Queens, New York home. He started playing the saxophone when he was 8-years-old and continued his studies at the Harlem School of the Arts and Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art. Benjamin complemented his early jazz studies by attending pianists Barry Harris’ Jazz Workshops and Dr. Billy Taylor’s Jazzmobile.
Femi Temowo is a MOBO Award nominated musician who was raised listening to West African pioneers such as Fela Kuti, Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey. Later he discovered the legendary Charlie Parker and classic jazz albums such as Miles Davis’ ‘Kind Of Blue’. It was when he became inspired by the great jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery, that he decided to pursue his passion for the guitar, based around a fusion of these musical influences.
