The Laurence Hobgood Trio
Laurence Hobgood (piano), Matthew Clohesy (bass), and Jared Schonig (drums) form the Laurence Hobgood Trio, led by Laurence Hobgood who is heavily awarded for his musical talent. He has played at many of the world's leading musical venues including Carnegie Hall, the Lincoln Center, the White House, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Tanglewood, Hollywood Bowl, and the Sydney Opera House. Grammy nominations were awarded to Kurt Elling's first ten albums, all of which Hobgood wrote. The trio's debut CD, Honor Thy Fathers, was considered a "sublime statement" (Jazz Times). Although Hobgood has a record number of awards for his compositions, the trio provides a new platform for which to express his musical talents.
