About Esperanza Spalding

Esperanza Spalding is an American bassist, singer, songwriter, and composer. Her accolades include five Grammy Awards, a Boston Music Award, a Soul Train Music Award, and two honorary doctorates: one from her alma mater, Berklee College of Music, and one from the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). She was chosen to perform at Barrack Obama’s award acceptance ceremony for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 when he was the President of the USA.

Thara Memory mentored Spalding. She has cited jazz bassists Ron Carter and Dave Holland as essential influences on her music—Carter for the orchestration of his playing and Holland for how his compositional method complements his style. She sings in several languages, including English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French.
