Shane Endsley


Shane Endsley resides in Brooklyn, NY, where he is steadily building his reputation as one of the most unique voices on the trumpet today. DownBeat Magazine named him as one of the “Top 25″ trumpeters of his generation in 2007. A truly modern and dynamic musician, he can be found on recordings ranging from modern instrumentalists Steve Coleman, Dave Binney, and Donny McCaslin, to folk and rock icons like Ani DiFranco, Erin McKeown, and Pearl Jam. Shane is an accomplished drummer and composer who is constantly expanding his musical vocabulary with the rich experiences offered by New York City. He dove into the intricate ornamental style of the Balkan brass bands with the powerhouse 10 piece group, Slavic Soul Party and is now venturing into the lilting rhythms of Brazilian Forro and Maracatu with Scott Kettner of Nation Beat and Maracatu NY. Endsley is a founding member of the band Kneebody, recently nominated for BEST JAZZ GROUP in the 2010 DOWNBEAT READERS POLL.
