A titan in her field, Maria Schneider has been blurring the lines between genres from her first recording, 1994’s Evanescence. She’s been honing and developing her own personal writing style for her 18-member collective ever since. She’s won Grammys in multiple genres (seven wins on 14 nominations), collaborated with David Bowie on his final album ★, and was named Jazz Master by the National Endowment for the Arts in 2019. Her latest double-album, 2020’s Data Lords, won two Grammys, was a Pulitzer Prize Finalist, named Jazz Album of the Year by the Jazz Journalists Association and NPR, and won France's prestigious Grand Prix de l'Académie du Jazz. The LP melds her art and advocacy, which has led her to testify before the Congress on digital intellectual property rights, as well as write various white papers on the digital music economy. NPR’s Nate Chinen dubbed the album “the most daring work of Schneider's career.”
