Joe Berry is a multi-instrumentalist and a member of the wildly successful French electronic music project known as M83. When Joe is not touring the world, his work is a compelling coalescence of creative titles including composer, producer, educator, accompanist and puppeteer. In other words, Joe is adventurous — just like his music.
Joe holds a Bachelors of Music in Jazz Studies with emphasis in both Saxophone Performance and Composition and earned his Masters of Music in Jazz and Improvisational Music. His education is just about the only traditional aspect of his curriculum vitae, though. You might recognize him from a Michel Gondry-directed Chobani yogurt commercial next to composer Jon Brion, or on MTV as a dancing saxophonist in Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off video. Joe was also a member Save Ferris, is a rotating member of Wayne Kramer’s free jazz experimental Lexington Arts Ensemble group, and Vice President of artist development for the Joe Zawinul Foundation For Achievement.
