Stéphane Clément was born in Miami, Florida, on October 25, 2000. Consecutively, in 2018 and 2019, he was awarded YoungArts prizes in Jazz Trumpet. Also in 2018 and 2019, he embarked on two of the Herbie Hancock Institute National Peer-to-Peer tours, comprising of six of the most impressive high school musicians in the country, and called to perform at the Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition Finals & All-Star Gala at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. At 18, he accepted a scholarship to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Jazz Studies from Manhattan School of Music. While in Manhattan, Stéphane was under the tutelage of renowned artists Ambrose Akinmusire, Nadia Noordhuis, and Jon Faddis. Stéphane’s experience includes learning from legendary artists who have become leading names on the international scene. In 2020 he was also called to be a part of Ambrose Akinmusire’s large ensemble ‘Banyan’. Most recently, Stéphane identifies as an artist, designer, producer, trumpeter, and composer. He has helped to create various critically acclaimed albums with artists such as Jahari Stampley, Derrick Hodge, Dion Kerr, and many more. Stéphane’s current goal is to connect as many bridges between art and life as possible, whilst exploring and experimenting with creators across different art forms and passions.

Tim Watson, 24, is a Brooklyn-based guitarist, sound designer, and composer.

Krishnan, Charumathi Raghuraman, and Shree Sundarkumar, as well as regular concerts in Miami with Cuban jazz legend Ignacio Berroa’s trio. His recent composition projects include PURE PLASTIC (for JACK Quartet) and BLACKPILL2023. Watson's sextet, Tim Watson's Hostile Architecture, blends South Indian classical rhythm, American minimalism, and the music of SOPHIE, and has just released their first single, Adrenochrome Etude.

He has performed with the Immanuel Wilkins Quartet, Ignacio Berroa Trio, Godwin Louis’ Global, Jean Caze’s Amede, Emmet Cohen Trio, and Tal Cohen Trio, and alongside artists like Justin Brown and Chantae Cann.

Kerr also played guitar, engineered, and co-produced Seafoam Walls' record XVI, released on Ecstatic Peace Library.
