Ulysses Owens Jr. 

The Musician's Career Guide:Turning Your Talent Into Sustained Success

A drummer who “take[s] a back seat to no one” (The New York Times), performer, producer and educator, Ulysses Owens Jr. goes the limit in the jazz world and Beyond. Claiming four successful albums of his own, Owens has also gained special attention for his performances on the GRAMMY award-winning albums Dedicated to You (Kurt Elling), The Good Feeling (Christian McBride Big Band.), and GRAMMY award-nominated albums Giant Steps and Countdown (Joey Alexander), Out Here, Live at The Village Vanguard (Christian McBride Trio), and most recently, Nat King Cole, and Me (Gregory Porter.) Owens also remains tightly connected to his hometown of Jacksonville, Florida where his family founded Don’t Miss a Beat, Inc., a non-profit organization empowering young people to dream big and give back to their communities through a blend of musical, artistic, academic, and civic engagement programming. His KeyNote talk on the Knox YouTube Channel will reference his second book “The Musician’s Career Guide: Turning Your Talent into Sustained Success.” He will discuss career development, creative entrepreneurship, and branding among other topics.
