Scary Pockets + Larry Goldings = SCARY GOLDINGS

Jack Conte — co-founder of Patreon and Pomplamoose — teams up with his high school buddy Ryan Lerman — Guitarist and Musical Director for the likes of Michael Bublé, John Legend, and Ben Folds, among others — to bring you pockets that are scary.

Three and a half years after their first session, Scary Pockets has released over 180 videos that have been watched over 150 million times on YouTube, for over 330 million minutes. They've collaborated with Larry Goldings, Casey Abrams, India Carney, James Gadson, Cary Brothers, Peter Hollens, Darren Criss, Charles Jones, Julia Nunes, Kenton Chen, Antwaun Stanley, Judith Hill, Bruno Major, Reeve Carney, Joey Dosik, Derek Hough, Bill Wurtz, Theo Katzman and dozens of other artists and musicians to bring you funk re-imaginings of familiar tunes every week.

A highly regarded pianist, Larry Goldings is an in-demand sideman and bandleader known for his balance of hard-swinging, harmonically nuanced post-bop and funky organ jazz. Emerging in the early '90s, Goldings established himself as a premier soloist on the New York scene, playing often in his trio with guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Bill Stewart. He has issued a stream of highly regarded albums, including 1995's Whatever It Takes, 2002's Sweet Science, and 2007's Grammy-nominated Saudades with drummer Jack DeJohnette and guitarist John Scofield. He is a longtime touring member of James Taylor's band, and has been sought out by a wide array of performers, including Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Maceo Parker, Sia, Charlie Haden, and others.
