Durand Bernarr has worked with some of music’s biggest legends, including Earth, Wind & Fire; Producer Yonni; The Internet; Anderson; Paak; Erykah Badu and many others. But his own work, for which he was named an "artist to know" in 2019 by Billboard, solidifies him as a legend in his own right, a performer that “kills it all the time” (Lena Waithe). His 2020 self-titled album DUR& debuted at the #1 spot on the Apple Music R&B charts. Don’t miss this chance to see this sonically imaginative sensation live on the mainstage.

Durand Bernarr

Singer. Songwriter. Producer. Skater. Actor. Host.

With a sound that has been coined as "Gangster Musical Theatre" by Qveen Herby, Durand Bernarr is one-part Little Richard, one-part Rick James, plus a heavy dash of powerhouse vocals & witty lyrical storytelling. The result is uniquely Durand - your favorite singer’s favorite singer!  Durand  has  had  the  opportunity  to  sit  under,  collaborate,  &  learn  from  some  of  music’s  leading legends  and  contributors  such  as  Earth,  Wind  &  Fire,  Producer  Yonni  (1st  cousin  on  his  father’s side)  The  Internet,  Anderson.  Paak,  Sam  Sparro,  J*DaVeY,  Teedra  Moses,  Adam  Blackstone, Tweet,  comedian  Rickey  Smiley  &  Erykah  Badu. In  2016,  Durand  released  his  first  EP,    Sound  Check,  prompting  Billboard  to  name  him  an  "artist to  know"  and  Lena  Waithe  to  call  Durand  one  of  her  favorite  singers.  Now  in  2020,  Durand  has made  huge  waves  with  his  self-titled  album ​ DUR& , which  debuted  at  the  #1  spot  on  the  Apple Music  R&B  charts.  Featuring  collaborations  with  the  likes  of  Ari  Lennox,  KAYTRANADA,  Anna Wise,  &  bassist,  “Buddah”  Foster  Jr., DUR& is  as  playful,  witty  &  sonically  imaginative  as  it  is packed  with  infectious  hooks  and  just  plain  GOOD  singing.
