A jazz performance student at the University of Miami, Devin Bing has always been a little bit blue. Growing up in New York, he began playing piano at age six and performing at local blues clubs at age fifteen, and when he was eighteen, he was already headlining his own jazz trio that toured throughout Long Island. Since arriving in Miami, Bing has collaborated with modern jazz greats like Kurt Elling and John Secada while also recording a single at Miami's Weeks Recording Studio. Combining jazzy piano lines and drum beats with soulful lyrics and vocals, Bing has created a sound that lies somewhere between R&B and gospel, taking the catchiest parts from each.
Devin Bing performs at 7:00 p.m. Thursday,
August 24, at the Gallery at CocoWalk, 3015
Grand Ave, Coconut Grove. Admission is free.
