This Saturday, February 28 at BAMcafé Live is Brooklyn-bred singer, keyboardist and composer Akie Bermiss.
Bermiss possesses a soulful voice that packs an emotional wallop. A staple of Brooklyn’s neo-soul scene, he performs with numerous local outfits, including Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, hip-hop violinist Miri Ben-Ari, and rapper Soul Khan, and has opened for George Clinton.
With just his raw vocals and sparse keyboard accompaniment, he serves up an irresistible mélange of jazz, funk, and R&B.
