Black Violin is composed of classically trained violist and violinist Wil B. and Kev Marcus who combine their classical training and and hip-hop influences to create a distinctive multi-genre sound that is often described as “classical boom.” The band released their major label debut Stereotypes (featuring Black Thought of The Roots and MC Pharoahe Monch) on Universal Music which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart and #4 on the Billboard R&B Chart. Black Violin has shared stages with top names including Kayne West, Aerosmith and Tom Petty, and has creatively collaborated with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, Wyclef Jean and Alicia Keys. The band is currently touring the US and Europe, as well as composing the score for Fox’s new series, Pitch, which will premiere Fall of 2016.

The band is endorsed by Yamaha Music, and has partnered with the National Association for Music Manufacturers (NAMM) to continue their advocacy for accessible music education. HIGHLIGHTS • Average over 150 shows per year • Performed for over 100,000 students across North America and Europe in the past year. • Performed at ofcial NFL functions for three Superbowls • TEDx talk given by Kev Marcus – Dec. 2013
