Mark Kelley Joins The Roots, Farewell To Owen Biddle

Our buddy Owen Biddle, who’s been holding down the low-end with The Roots for some time, is venturing on to new opportunities, focusing on his own music.  While we’ll miss Owen dearly, we’re excited to welcome Mark Kelley into the fold as an official part of the Roots fam-a-lam.  Mark has previously played with the likes of Meshell N’degeocello, Jason Moran, Roy Hargrove, Nicholas Payton, and Christian McBride among many others.  Plus, he’s a super cool dude.  We’re all excited to see where this will go.  Check out a clip of Mark performing above, with the Berklee All-Star Quartet, and after the jump as he and Meshell N’degeocello cover Prince‘s “Lady Cab Driver.”
