Mark G. Meadows
Acclaimed jazz pianist, music director, composer, vocalist, jazz instructor, & actor, Mark G. Meadows is a man on a mission: to create a unifying sound that breaks through social barriers. There’s something for everyone in his music, which harmonizes pop, gospel, R&B, hip hop, funk, and jazz. With his lyrics, suffused with meaning, and his velvet voice, Meadows cuts through the noise to speak to all. You can hear his genius in his 4 self-produced albums, Be the Change (2019), To the People (2016), Somethin’ Good (2014), and A Child is Born (2008). Debonair on the stage, he is an entertainer of the highest caliber.
In August 2016, Meadows made his acting debut as the titular role in the Washington, D.C., premiere of the hit Broadway musical Jelly’s Last Jam at the Signature Theatre. Since then, he’s been immersed in the theatre scene, successfully combining the raw, spontaneous nature of jazz with the story-telling, heavily produced nature of theatre. Recently awarded, “Best Jazz Artist” by the DC Wammies in 2020, Mark also received a Helen Hayes nomination for his music direction in “Ain’t Misbehavin” at Signature Theatre in the same year.
Increasingly in demand around the globe, Meadows has performed alongside world-renowned artists, including Usher, Cynthia Erivo, Renee Fleming, Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington, Angelique Kidjo, Bobby McFerrin, The NSO, Ledisi, Terence Blanchard, Nicholas Payton, Kurt Elling, Sean Jones, and Warren Wolf. He has headlined at premier venues, including Jazz at Lincoln Center and Smalls Jazz Club in NYC, Blues Alley, Bohemian Caverns, The Warner Theatre and The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C.; and the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, MD.
His latest release, Be the Change (2019), embodies the change he wishes to see in the world. Pulling from multiple genres, Mark continues to use his artistry to bring forth a positive message of love, joy, and hope to his audiences.
