322 is a genre-bending jazz quintet created in the greater Seattle area. Founder BrandonLee Cierley (Saxophone) together with Joshua VanCleave (Keyboards), Ian Crocker (Guitar), Sean Murphy (Bass), and Joel Bozich (Drums) come together to seamlessly blend elements of hip-hop, classic jazz, and R&B. We were born in rehearsal room #322 on the bustling top floor of a music building when five young musicians in 2014 had a vision: to reconcile jazz with the other styles of music that they knew and loved. We make music from music that inspires us - in hopes that it inspires you.
We’re playing at great venues and festivals all over the pacific northwest: The Royal Room, The Triple Door, Tula’s, Northwest Folklife, and 88.5 KNKX. In September 2017, we released our first professional album, "Emergence", a musical tribute to our diverse musical heritage. And are currently performing across the Seattle-Tacoma region. Our second album, “322“, is scheduled for release in fall 2018.
