Known as one of jazz’s most vibrant emerging artists, Endea Owens is a Detroit-raised recording artist, bassist, and composer. She has been mentored by jazz icons the likes of Marcus Belgrave, Rodney Whitaker, and Ron Carter. She has toured and performed with Wynton Marsalis, Jennifer Holliday, Diana Ross, Rhonda Ross, Solange, Jon Batiste, Jazzmeia Horn, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and Steve Turre, to name only a few. In 2018, Endea graduated from The Juilliard School and quickly joined The Late Show with Stephen Colbert as a member of their house band, Stay Human. Since then, Endea has won an Emmy, Grammy Award, and a George Foster Peabody Award. Endea’s work has appeared on Jon Batiste’s Grammy Award-winning album We Are, the Oscar-nominated film Judas and the Black Messiah, and H.E.R’s widely acclaimed Super Bowl LV performance. Endea has a true passion for philanthropy and teaching. She has taught students across the United States, South America, and Europe. In 2020, Endea founded the Community Cookout, a non-profit organization birthed out of the COVID-19 pandemic, that has provided meals and music to underserved neighborhoods in New York City. To date, Endea’s organization has helped feed close to 3,000 New Yorkers and has hosted over a dozen free concerts. In 2022, Endea composed an original piece about the life of Ida B. Wells entitled Ida’s Crusade for the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, which was also performed by the NYO Carnegie Hall Orchestra. Endea has written for brands such as Pyer Moss and Glossier. She is set to premiere a newly commissioned work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and will also serve as the 2023 MAC Music Innovator with that organization. In addition to her work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, Endea is the curator for the National Arts Club and a fellow for “Jazz is Now!” with the National Jazz Museum in Harlem, where she presents original compositions, curates series, and headlines performances for their 2022-23 season. Endea’s debut album, Feel Good Music, is set for release in 2023.
