About Mark G. Meadows
Strathmore Artist in Residence Class of 2015
Acclaimed jazz composer, pianist, music director, vocalist, jazz instructor, and actor Mark G. Meadows is a man on a mission: to create a unifying sound that breaks through social barriers. There’s something for everyone in his music, which harmonizes pop, gospel, R&B, hip hop, funk, and jazz. With his lyrics, suffused with meaning, and his velvet voice, Meadows cuts through the noise to speak to all. You can hear his genius in his 4 self-produced albums, Be the Change (2019), To the People (2016), Somethin’ Good (2014), and A Child is Born (2008). Debonair on the stage, he is an entertainer of the highest caliber.
After graduating from the famed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Meadows went on to earn two bachelor’s degrees in psychology and jazz piano from Johns Hopkins University. Afterwards, he decided to focus on music for the first time, and went on to earn a Graduate Performance Diploma in jazz piano from the prestigious Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore.
Meadows uses his artistry to bring forth a positive message of love, joy, and hope to his audiences.
