Doors Open at 12:00AM Guitarist Will Bernard has covered a great deal of ground during his career, both musically and geographically. The Berkeley, CA, native made his recording debut with multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum's culture-fusing Hieroglyphics Ensemble on Don Cherry's 1989 Multikulti album.
Since then, Bernard has on to perform and record with Charlie Hunter, Robert Walter, John Medeski, and Stanton Moore; hip-hop group The Coup; reggae band Groundation; legends like Dr. John, Booker T, Bernie Worrell, Zigaboo Modeliste, and Dr. Lonnie Smith; renowned rock eccentric Tom Waits; and myriad others. He was also a member of the Grammy-nominated group T.J. Kirk, alongside Charlie Hunter.
In addition to his work as a collaborator, Bernard has amassed a formidable discography as a leader, stretching from his 1998 debut Medicine Hat through 2008's Blue Plate Special and his latest release, Outdoor Living (2012).
