J Hoard

With The Lesson GK, Sonnymoon, and Dynamo


Artist-in-Residence J Hoard, the Brooklyn–based singer and songwriter who won a Grammy Award for his work with Chance the Rapper, is curating to showcase the unique voice he is cultivating in underground clubs on the Lower East Side. His vibrant melodies, lyrical genius, and infectious beats have launched him to international prominence, landing him featured spots in music festivals in Canada and Mexico, and he has toured with artists ranging from Sonnymoon and Kimbra to Meshell Ndegeocello and Pharoahe Monch.

In this concert, J Hoard shares the stage with The Lesson GK, which “[captures] the community vibe in a way that’s increasingly challenging” (The Village Voice); the “beautiful, electronically enhanced” Sonnymoon (NPR); international genre-blenders (U)nity; and funk-rock-reggae group Dynamo, whose uncanny group sound makes them “a band in the truest sense of the word, rather than solely a collection of talented individuals” (Nashville Offbeat).

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
