Eli Heath Ensemble
Eli Heath is an emerging American bassist, composer, and producer, currently located in Boston, Massachusetts. He has appeared on recordings and at major festivals and venues across North America, Europe and Brazil with artists including Kenny Werner, Luciana Souza, Charles Neville, Dominick Farinacci, Nicole Henry, and Jamey Haddad. Joining him will be Roy Ben Bashat on guitar and Tyson Jackson on Drums.
Jason Ji is a multigenre fingerstyle guitarist and singer-songwriter from Australia, a one-man band playing a travel-sized guitar to its most resonating and ear-catching potential. The legendary funk and soul guitarist Nile Rodgers couldn’t help but laugh in joy when he heard Ji’s playing. Ji was classically trained from age 11 through high school and eventually taught himself fingerstyle by watching videos online from the likes of Tommy Emmanuel and Emil Ernebro. In 2019, he was featured in Berklee’s Guitar Night: Pop and Rock concert as the only soloist, the Berklee International Folk Festival, and on China’s Got Talent. He’s preparing to release his indie-folk debut EP in fall 2021.
