Get ready to experience a historic blend of jazz, Gospel, hip hop, and avant-funk. Reaching the #1 iTunes Jazz position within 24 hours with BiG HOMiE, LA Buckner’s compositions blur the line between Sunday church service and face melting jam sessions.  

Buckner is a performing musician, teaching artist, and producer from the Northside of Minneapolis. He holds a Master's degree in Percussion Performance from McNally Smith College of Music, and is an instructor for the MacPhail Center for Music, and Minneapolis North High School. Currently, LA serves as co-host for the two-time Webby award winning PBS music education YouTube series, Sound Field.
