The Wilson Center at Cape Fear Community College today announced that Bruce Hornsby and yMusic will be in concert together at the Center on Wednesday, March 20, 2024 at 7:30 p.m.
Based out of Williamsburg, VA, Hornsby first rose to national prominence with “The Way It Is,” his 1986 Grammy-winning debut album with The Range. The title track became the most played song on American radio in 1987. Tupac Shakur’s timeless song “Changes” builds on “The Way It Is” and set the stage for many subsequent sampled versions of the track, including ones by hip-hop luminaries Wyclef Jean, and E-40.
The 13-time Grammy nominee has a solid status as a highly sought-after collaborator. In 1991 Hornsby played with Bonnie Raitt on her iconic hit “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” Additionally, Hornsby was a part-time member of the Grateful Dead from September 1990 to March 1992, and performed with them for more than 100 concerts. Hornsby’s own 23 albums have sold over 11 million copies worldwide. His most recent solo studio album, “’Flicted,” was released this past May.
Founded in New York City in 2008, yMusic (Alex Sopp, flutes/voice; Hideaki Aomori, clarinets; CJ Camerieri, trumpet/horn; Rob Moose, violin; Nadia Sirota, viola; Gabriel Cabezas, cello) believes in presenting excellent, emotionally communicative music, regardless of style or idiom. They are highly regarded collaborators as well, and have worked with dozens of popular artists in addition to Bruce Hornsby, including Ben Folds, Emily King, Jose Gonzales, ANOHNI, Dirty Projectors, John Legend, Son Lux, the Staves, and Paul Simon.
