A Berklee College of Music alumni, groove is at the heart of bassist and composer Antar Goodwin’s playing. He is one of New York’s first-call players.
Equally comfortable in the studio and on stage, he has played electric and acoustic bass on many of NYC’s best stages.
Born in Philly, Antar spent the early part of his life moving with his family. His strong desire to play showed at a very early age. By the age of five, he was playing drums, and by seven, piano and classical violin. His earliest memories are of plunking out melodies on his family’s worn out piano or beating out rhythms on chairs. By the time he was in his teens, he was playing bass, guitar, piano and began to seriously write songs.
Antar has collaborated with many greats in the music industry including: Sting, Lauryn Hill, Abbey Lincoln, MIZE, Tutu, Benny Golson, Ezina LeBlanc, Matisyahu and Patty Smyth.
