Julian Coryell has been playing and recording music since childhood with everyone from his father (legendary jazz guitarist Larry Coryell) to Carole King, Jewel and Aimee Mann. An alumnus of the Berklee College of Music, he's also performed with Dave Brubeck, Herbie Hancock and Billy Cobham. He's produced legendary singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen, and recently played to sold out crowds at the world famous Budokan in Tokyo with Japanese rock star Kazuyah Yoshii. Says Julian, Coryell, Auger, Sample Trio is my opportunity to take what my father has given me and run with it".
Since age 21 Karma Auger has been touring and/or engineering / producing tracks for his father (legendary organist/keyboardist Brian Auger) and a huge list of world class artists including Eric Burdon (The Animals), Robby Krieger (The Doors), Larry Coryell, and Billy Cobham to name a few. His understanding of the business rounds out his musical education which Karma owes greatly to his father. My father has given me a priceless education and I am lucky enough to work with him today."
Nicklas Sample began his musical education as a young child watching his father, jazz legend Joe Sample. Nicklas immersed himself in the LA scene as a professional bass player, playing both electric and upright with the local talent such as Nikka Costa, Zoo Story, Daniel Cage, Jakob Dylan, Duke Daniels and Alison Sudol of A Fine Frenzy (whom he has also co-written songs with). He is also the bass player and member of The Crusaders and the Joe Sample Trio. Joe Sample is the best teacher I could ever have. Im learning from the best."
