Stuart D. Bogie was born in Evanston, Illinois, United States. He studied music at the Interlochen Arts Academy and the University of Michigan, focusing on clarinet and bass clarinet. While in high school, he co-founded the group Transmission with Zachary Mastoon (aka Caural) in 1991. Later, Bogie would re-form Transmission with Colin Stetson, Eric Perney and Andrew Kitchen while at The U of M. After graduating in 1997, Bogie moved to San Francisco to pursue musical endeavors.

In 2000, Bogie moved to New York City, where he met Jordan McLean and reunited with friend and mentor Michael Herbst of Antibalas, who recruited him to join the large jazz ensemble Fire of Space, led by McLean. Soon after, McLean and Herbst brought Bogie into Antibalas, where he functioned variously as conductor, tenor saxophonist, and composer, touring to over 15 countries and performing in major festivals around the world since.

Bogie’s song “Indictment” was released on Antibalas’ Who Is This America, which garnered an 8.1 from Pitchfork Media. The favorable review notes the song “opens with a Superfly-echoing riff as spastic tenor sax man Stuart Bogie recites a litany of offenses committed by everyone from Donald Rumsfeld to “the game of baseball,” in what sounds like some funky People’s Court.” The Village Voice called “Indictment,” “…a fantastic Bush-era protest song, lithe and lethal.”

Another Bogie composition for Antibalas, “Beaten Metal”, was named as one of the top 100 songs of 2007 by Pitchfork Media, ahead of modern-day staples by MGMT and Broken Social Scene. Pitchfork writer Grayson Currin applauded the song, noting “quick splashes of colorful sound and some slowly building drama, “Beaten Metal” sounds brazen, rhythmic, and powerful—like Edgard Varese coming of age after hip-hop.”

Bogie also composed “I.C.E.” and the vocal parts (lyrics and melody) for “Sanctuary”, which was released (along with “Beaten Metal” on the Antibalas album Security, produced by John McEntire. Bogie frequently conducted Antibalas between 2004 and 2012, when he formally left the group.

Along with many members of Antibalas, Bogie appeared and performed in the Broadway musical Fela! about Fela Kuti directed by Bill T. Jones produced by Steve Hendel and Music Directed by Aaron Johnson. He performed as the featured soloist, improvising several solos throughout the show. The New York Times wrote “music that gets into your bloodstream, setting off vibrations you’ll live with for days to come.”

Stuart Bogie has a long history of working with producer Dave Sitek. In 2006, Bogie contributed bass harmonica, tenor sax, contra-bass clarinet to the critically acclaimed TV on the Radio album Return to Cookie Mountain, which Pitchfork Media named the #2 best album of 2006.

In 2008, Bogie was recruited to contribute tenor and baritone saxophone and collaborate on horn arrangements for TV on the Radio’s Dear Science. Following the release of the acclaimed record, Bogie toured extensively with TVOTR across Europe and North America making television appearances including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report.

Their latest release, Escape Velocity, was released in September 2015. AllMusic noted that the album was “Marking a new focus more than a new sound for the group, Escape Velocity’s interplay of ruminative tone and unbridled infectiousness works like a charm, compelling not only moving feet but repeat plays”.

The Bogie Band feat. Joe Russo is a new collaboration between long time friends Joe Russo and Bogie. The group features nine musicians playing wind and percussion instruments. The dynamic arrangements are built on the flowing propulsion of Russo’s drumming alternating through transcendental minimalism, raucous humor, and a revelatory joy that draws on each of the 9 musicians ability to creatively solo and contribute to the rhythmic mass of the ensemble.

Their first record,The Prophets in the City will be released on the label Royal Potato Family.
