---------------------------------------------------


Miguel Atwood-Ferguson is a very unique and special force in

today’s world of music. He effortlessly bridges diverse genres and

generations of musical and cultural elements into cohesive and

magical presentations. One of Miguel’s greatest achievements to

date was in 2009 when he composed and conducted the historic

‘Suite for Ma Dukes’ concert in LA leading over 60 musicians in

tribute to the transcendant modern Hip-Hop producer J Dilla.

Having studied classically since the age of four and being

exposed to cultures and art from all around the world, Miguel is now

able to enjoy a very diverse career collaborating with many amazing

artists. Miguel has had the great fortune to perform or record with

giants such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones, Henry

Mancini, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Wayne Shorter, Billy Higgins, Ray

Brown, Brad Mehldau, Hubert Laws, Seu Jorge, Dr. Dre, Will.i.am,

Madlib, and many others.

While performing on violin and viola and arranging highly

personal arrangements are Miguel’s main pursuits, he also is an

educator, dj, producer, music director and composer. Miguel leads

many of his own ensembles and has had incredible artists like Seu

Jorge, Sly Stone, George Clinton, Shuggie Otis, Flying Lotus,

Stephen ‘Thundercat’ Bruner, Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave, Zap Mama, Jose

James, Bilal, Meshell Ndegeocello, Aloe Blacc, Pharoahe Monch,

Quadron, Karriem Riggins, Talib Kweli and Posdnuos as his own

special guests.

In 2011, Miguel had the honor of providing Oprah Winfrey with

a one man orchestra of himself as the music behind the main promo

of her new TV Network ‘OWN’ courtesy of Miguel’s intro to his duet

with Will.i.am off of the Black Eyed Peas latest album.

Miguel has plans to release his very first album in 2013 on the

Los Angeles indie label ‘Brainfeeder.’
