Brooklyn-bred singer, keyboardist, and composer Akie Bermiss possesses a soulful voice that packs an emotional wallop. A staple of Brooklyn’s neo-soul scene, he performs with numerous local outfits, including Aabaraki, the Screaming Headless Torsos, hip-hop violinist Miri Ben-Ari, and rapper Soul Khan, and has opened for George Clinton. With his raw vocals and keyboard accompaniment, he serves up an irresistible mélange of jazz, funk, and R&B.
