\\ Three minutes with Keyon Harrold ahead of his UK tour
Trumpeter Keyon Harrold is living his best life; he’s worked with globally-recognised artists from Bilal to Jay Z and was a major contributor to the soundtrack for Miles Ahead. It was its Director Don Cheadle who, after a gushing conversation of admiration, introduced him to the stage as ‘the Mugician’; part musician, part magician. It was after that, he told Billboard, that he decided, ‘I’m gonna have to write something along those lines…'”
With his second album The Mugician having excited fans and gathered him many new ones, he’s about to begin his UK tour with support from Ashley Henry and the RE: Ensemble and Tina Edwards (DJ set) amongst others. We had some time with Keyon ahead of his dates.
