Minneapolis and Houston-based guitarist and composer, Will Schmid, has been performing his original music for almost a decade. Before moving to Texas for graduate school at Rice University in 2020, his duos, trios, and quartets frequently headlined popular Minnesota jazz series including Saturday Night Jazz at the Black Dog and the illicit Jazz Workshop. He has led ensembles in multiple appearances at the Twin Cities and Iowa City Jazz Festivals, and at nationally renowned venues such as New York’s ShapeShifter Lab and Cleveland’s BOP STOP at The Music Settlement. He has played with Jay Epstein, Dean Magraw, and Greg Lewis, and his bands have opened for Eric Kamau Grávátt, Dave King, and Billy Peterson. In 2019, he released the album Non-Trivial Problem with Twin Cities modern jazz collective SPACE. SPACE’s second album, The Approaching Coast, will be released in December 2022.
