“Mr. Lopez throttles the bass, bowing and plucking with relentless fervor” - Giovanni Russonello NYTimes

“It’s a truism in free jazz that gifted bassists feature on everyone’s speed dial list. If that’s the case then it’s no surprise that Brandon Lopez is one of the most in-demand practitioners on the scene.” - NYC Jazz Record

 
 

BRANDON LOPEZ (Born 1988 in Passaic NJ) is a composer and contrabassist working in the field of far left musics, with a primary focus in improvisation.

Since his recent move to New York City, he's become one of the most in demand players of his generation. He’s had the pleasure of sharing the stage with avant visionaries (William Parker, Sun Ra Archestra, Nate Wooley, Ingrid Laubrock, Gerald Cleaver) and most recently, as a featured soloist with the New York Philharmonic for the premier of Ashley Fure’s “Filament”.

He's the 2018 Artist in Residence at Issue Project Room and the 2018 Van Lier Fellow at Roulette Intermediary.

His third album as a soloist, "Quoniam Facta Sum Vilis" can be found on the Astral Spirits label.
