A founding member of the Los Angeles-based West Coast Get Down collective made famous by saxophonist Kamasi Washington, pianist and composer Cameron Graves has pioneered an invigorating, borderless concept born of his disparate musical experiences in the worlds of classical music, bebop, fusion, hip-hop, and heavy metal.

He brings music from his latest Mack Avenue album, Seven.

Graves topped Rolling Stone’s 2017 list of “10 New Artists You Need To Know,” who describing the omnivorous keyboardist as “the house pianist for the party at the end of the universe, pulling in signals from John Coltrane, J Dilla, Meshuggah and points beyond.” A friend of Washington from their teenage years, Graves and the saxophone star shared an obsession with Coltrane that led to the formation of WCGD in L.A.’s Leimert Park neighborhood, and Graves’ unmistakable piano virtuosity was a foundational part of Washington’s celebrated 3-LP juggernaut The Epic.

Dubbed by Washington as “a musical genius,” Graves explores new musical realms with Seven, the follow-up to his 2018 debut for Mack Avenue, Planetary Prince, further expands on his otherworldly inspirations from the early 20th century spiritual tome The Urantia Book, revealing the mysteries of the universe, interplanetary travel, and the battle between good and evil.

Cameron's music has been inspiring me since I was thirteen years old and it still does today! I'm so glad he's sharing it with the world!
