Miguel Atwood-Ferguson is a very unique and special force in today’s world of music. Having recorded on close to 400 albums already by the age of 34, he effortlessly bridges diverse genres and generations of musical and cultural elements into cohesive and magical presentations.
One of Miguel’s greatest achievements to date was in 2009 when he composed and conducted the historic ‘Suite for Ma Dukes’ concert in LA leading over 60 musicians in tribute to the transcendent modern Hip-Hop producer J Dilla.
Having diligently studied classically since the age of four and being exposed to cultures and art from all around the world, Miguel is now able to enjoy a very diverse career collaborating with many amazing artists. Miguel has had the great fortune to perform or record with giants such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Henry Mancini, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Wayne Shorter, Billy Higgins, Ray Brown, Brad Mehldau, Flying Lotus, Hubert Laws, Seu Jorge, Dr. Dre, Will.i.am, Madlib, and many others.
While performing on violin and viola and arranging highly
personal arrangements are Miguel’s main pursuits, he also is an educator, dj, producer, music director and composer. Miguel leads many of his own ensembles and has had incredible artists like Seu Jorge, Sly Stone, George Clinton, Shuggie Otis, Flying Lotus, Stephen ‘Thundercat’ Bruner, Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave, Zap Mama, Jose James, Bilal, Meshell Ndegeocello, Aloe Blacc, Pharoahe Monch, Quadron, Karriem Riggins, Talib Kweli and Posdnuos as his special guests.
In 2011, Miguel had the honor of providing Oprah Winfrey with a one man orchestra of himself as the music behind the main promo of her new TV Network ‘OWN’ courtesy of Miguel’s intro to his duet with Will.i.am off of the Black Eyed Peas 2010 album ‘The Beginning’. Miguel has plans to release his very first album in 2016 on the Los Angeles indie label ‘Brainfeeder.’
