Will Bernard Bio

Although currently a New Yorker, guitarist Will Bernard’s unique voice was formed from 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, Ben Sidran, Peter Apfelbaum, Tom Waits, Dr. John 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 “If Four was One” were both nominated for Grammys and he is nominated yearly in Downbeat magazines critic’s poll for best “rising star’ guitar player. Will is a regular fixture at New Orleans Jazz fest, Jam Cruise and other such activities 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, Pleasure Drones, Brian Charette’s Mighty Grinders and the Will Bernard trio and quartet.Will’s 8th album as a leader “Out and About” was released spring 2016 on Posi-tone records.
