Akie Bermiss is a pianist, composer, and singer living and working in Brooklyn, NY. He is a graduate of Bard College with degree in music composition. While there he also studied American Music (read: tin pan alley, broadway musicals, and jazz) and writing (read: wrote some bad poetry and called it good). To his friends, he is considered a musical snob of the highest order; to his enemies — a musical charlatan of the basest variety. Among other things he is also the author of a children’s book (“I Hate to Be Sick” — out on Scholastic), a lover of science fiction and fantasy novels, a huge fan of cigars, and he takes his bourbon: neat.
Akie Bermiss is a Brooklyn native raised by former-activists in a musical household full of jazz and politics. He began singing in church, moved it to school for a while, and then took it up as a career.
Since graduating from Bard College in 2005, he has moved back to New York City and made a name for himself with his signature sound – a voice that blends R&B, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Funk effortlessly. Akie has unique skills in composing and songwriting, and, not least, great ability to work with and enhance the sounds of other musicians and singers.
He is currently playing with the Brooklyn based FutureSoul band Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, Miri Ben-Ari (the Hip Hop Violinist), Rap sensation Soul Khan, and also working with his own band, the Akie Bermiss Trio.
We can honestly say that this full blood musician brings soul and musicianship of the highest caliber to each one of his projects, plus he is actually quite the comedian…

Dress: Cocktail attire
