Endea Owens is on a roll, and it’s up to us to keep up with her. At this early stage of her career, the bassist and bandleader — a proud product of the Detroit music scene (Michigan State University ’15) and Juilliard jazz graduate — can be seen almost nightly in the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert house band. She’s performed with popular heavyweights like Diana Ross, Solange and Elvis Costello. As a composer, she’s been commissioned to create new music for Jazz at Lincoln Center, NYO Carnegie Hall Orchestra, and the Cincinnati Symphony. She’s won an Emmy, Grammy and George Foster Peabody Award. Her debut album, Feel Good Music, was just released, featuring her group The Cookout. At the helm of that band, she’s headlined major jazz clubs and festivals, and a memorable Tiny Desk appearance on NPR, delivering an uplifting mix of jazz, gospel and neo-soul energy. On the same day of her debut headlining gig at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam this summer, she made time for her first Blindfold Test on the nearby Central Park talk stage.
