Will Bernard bio
Although currently a New Yorker, guitarist Will Bernard's unique voice was formed for the most part from the rich cultural roots of the San Francisco Bay Area. Along the way he studied classical music, jazz, played in basements and coliseums, and absorbed the Bay Area Multi-Kultii, the New York downtown edge, and the loose funk of New Orleans. He has performed or recorded with Charlie Hunter, Stanton Moore, Robert Walter, John Medeski, Dr Lonnie Smith, Ben Sidran, Peter Apfelbaum, Jai Uttal, Tom Waits, Dr. John , MTO, Butler/Bernstein and the Hot 9 and a lot of other known and unknowns. Will can be seen working in a chameleon-like way to fit into his current habitat. His 2007 CD "Party Hats" as well as his 1997 collaborative project T.J. Kirk's If Four Was One were both nominated for Grammys, and he is nominated yearly in Downbeat Magazine's Critics Poll for "Best Rising Star" Guitar Player. Will is a regular fixture at New Orleans Jazz fest, Jam Cruise and other similar events, and has toured extensively in the US and Europe. Currently, Will performs with John Medeski's Mad Skillet, Peter Apfelbaum's Sparkler, Frequinox with Stanton Moore and Robert Walter,Brian Charette's Mighty Grinders, Clubfoot Orchestra, Revelator featuring Bill Laswell, and the Will Bernard Trio and larger group Freelance Subversives Will’s 9th record as a leader “Freelance Subversives” was released in 2020 on Ropeadope records. In 2021 he released “Ancient Grains” on Posi-tone records and will be releasing the adventurous “Pond Life” on his own label Dreck to Disk in May 2022.
